Wake Up Wednesday

Last week's challenge was to assemble a small kit for someone who is homeless.  We did this one together as a family.  We ran throughout the house looking for things to put in the bag.  We included shampoo, conditioner, lotion, lots of non perishable foods, a spoon, a washcloth, socks, chapstick, Q-tips, a water bottle, and anything else we thought might be appreciated.  I'm really excited to be able to give this away the next time I meet who is struggling.

This week there will be no challenge.  I just want to introduce something new I'm going to be doing here. I got a sweet email from a reader who shared THIS link with me.  It's about a preschool teacher who does "Superheroes of Kindness" with her students.  They all wear capes and head off to do something good about once a month or so.  Is that cool or what?

The most meaningful experiences I've had doing Wake Up Wednesdays have been the ones where I've been able to involve my children.  So, every FIRST WEDNESDAY of the month here will now be a Wake Up Wednesday that you can do with kids.  It'll be our "Super Heroes of Service" and my boys and I will head out with capes on.  (Well, they will.  I'll skip the cape part myself.  Goggles are also optional :)

What do you think?  Are any of you in?  You'll also have a month to complete this challenge, since it'll only be the first Wednesday of each month.  I believe that by teaching young children to serve we can do an endless amount of good now and in the future.

Thanks for reading my blog.
