Blessing Bags: Keep Smiling, You are Loved
We had a great time today putting together Blessing Bags for the needy. This particular batch will make its way to Jamaica to brighten the day of some locals in need of a bright spot. All items were purchased at my local dollar store, making this gift extremely economical. It is always a fun way to pass an hour or so during the day, putting daily essentials into a bag with a little inspirational note to make someone smile. These bags contain a pair of socks, razor, toothbrush and toothbrush holder, tube of toothpaste, Valentine hard candy, a package of cookies, and a quick message “Just a little bit of love coming your way on an ordinary day. Keep Smiling, You are Loved.”
Blessing bags are a great way to show someone you care. A lot of people keep a few in their car, and when they see a homeless person or someone struggling they have them handy to give them one. Obviously it’s not a cure for anything but it is a nice boost for someone to know someone – at that moment – thought of them. A stranger gave them a moment of their time. Sometimes that can make a big difference. Creating blessing bags is also a great way to spend time with friends or family, and is especially educational when including very young children. A great way to instill compassion and service into young minds.
