I cannot believe that my Season of Giving is over!! I am not sure if I feel a bit relieved that I completed my goal or sad that I don’t have a daily purpose anymore? This has been such an amazing journey!! I think this experience showed me just how much I have and how selfish I can be at times. I am so fortunate to have a husband who can support my family and I am so lucky to have time to share it with others in need. I see my life a bit differently now and I hope to continue my Acts of Kindness throughout 2012. Thank you for reading, posting and joining me on this little adventure.

Teachers have such a huge impact on children lives and I love to recognize their hard work and dedication with a little gifts and big thank you notes. I am so fortunate to have 5 AMAZING teachers working with both Gavin and Lincoln this year. Their kindness, patience, strength, positive attitudes and dedication make my boys LOVE school. Teachers deserve so much credit for what they do so I always to try to recognize and thank them their efforts especially during the holiday’s.
