Let them have candy…
I do believe that sometimes it’s the littlest thing that can make someone’s day. Today I’m hoping I can accomplish this goal with just 50 cents.
We’ve started a small tradition in our house. Wednesday night = Skyline Chili night. Why? Those of you who have kids, likely know the answer. Kids eat free Wednesday nights…and kids love hot dogs. Enough said. Walking out of the restaurant I noticed the small row of candy machines by the door…and then I got my idea for my act of kindness for the day.
I quickly reached in my purse and pulled out all the change I had…2 quarters. I picked my two favorite candy machines and inserted the coins into each one…and left them there.
My hope is that a kid walking out of the restaurant later that night or sometime the next day would have a moment of pure joy and excitement when they realized that they scored free candy. A small treasure…but to a child, it could feel like hitting the lottery.
