That's the most beautiful thing I've ever heard of doing. I cried through the whole part about the mall.

My gosh! I all but bawled reading this post. I'm not sure why if affected me that way. I didn't even know what the words were! I clicked over to check them out and the bawling continued....what a sweet idea. I think I would be a blubbering fool in the mall watching all of that! It makes me start to think.....


This is the best new tradition ever Jeanne ~ what a fantastic idea. Wishing you a very Merry Christmas. xo

Alicia @ La Famille

what a great idea! i love it. the words you speak really are so important and they can build up or tear down in a matter of seconds. so important to teach your kids that. thanks for the great idea!

merry christmas!


Merry Christmas Jeanne. Your home looks beautiful. What a sweet thing to do.

I read this post and it brought to mind an act of KINDNESS my daughter and I did this past few days. You see there is always someone on a corner appearing to be begging for Money$$ you now "HOMELESS" signs so my daughter and I would tell them God Bless and give them Christmas Cookies...The frosted ones from the market. Really they were shocked and yet surprised to receive Christmas cookies.

After READING this POST of yours I was so choked up I wish I had more time now to get out there with my Hannah and some friends and pass on words of encouragement, your inspiring post I will not forget and will try this next year it is at the top of our list. My daughter as beautiful as she is inside out said she will do this at college next Christmas...Of course no time now this year.

Thank you sooooooo! very much for being a BRAVE GIRL! we need more HEARTS like your's.

Un Joyeux Noel
May Gods Biggest blessing be bestowed upon you and yours!!

That was such a sweet jester that you and your kids did. And at the same time you were teaching your kids that it is important to care about other people. GOd bless you all. Merry Christmas.


What a wonderful way to spread joy! Bless you and may your Christmas be everything you hope for :)
