Kindness Challenge #4

How did last week go? Did you successfully perform 5 acts of secret service?

This is the last week of our Kindness Challenge. We are 7 days away from Valentine's Day and our BIG Kindness celebration. Will you have accomplished 100 Acts of Kindness by then? We are having the hardest time keeping track around here... but we are trying! Tomorrow is going to be crazy, so I'm posting this week's challenge early.

Kindness Challenge #4- Smile at 20 people.

"Everytime you smile at someone, it is an action of love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing." ~Mother Teresa

This is my favorite smiler at our house these days. Her smiles melt my heart. It is amazing how great a little smile can make you feel.

Do you think you can accomplish this challenge? If you're interested in making it even harder... don't count family members and friends!

(This is going to be a tough one for me because my mouth is currently filled with canker sores and smiling really hurts right now)

Fortunately, I can already tell that this kindness challenge is working. My son is CONSTANTLY telling me about kind things that others do and gets SO EXCITED when I tell him that he did something kind. We are not perfect (and there are many days when I still haven't been very kind), but I am seeing little bits of progress! How about you?

Good luck with this week's challenge and keep smiling!


  1. What a sweet smile photo - you definitely have an amazing smiler at your house! I'm loving the different challenges. It's nice to have a challenge to focus on each week. And this one is simple and perfect for the week before Valentine's Day! I featured your post at the Living Montessori Now Facebook page at
