I’m a bit late in posting this because, life. But! We completed our service project for the February edition of our 12 Months of Christmas initiative.
This month the girls decided to help a family that’s going through a rough spot with some medical and financial concerns. More specifically, they wanted to bake cupcakes for the children of said family. And they would have to be confetti cupcakes. Naturally.
That’s the beauty of service, I think. It doesn’t need to be a large-scale, grand gesture. It can be something small that helps someone you know (or don’t know). It can be a simple reminder that people care and want to help. And I’ve learned that sometimes children have some of the best service ideas.
We also realized that baking 24 cupcakes for 2 small children was probably not going to win us any brownie points with their mom, so we decided to send 6 along to them and send the rest along with the girls to the other kids at the babysitter. Snack time went very well.
