Never Forget!

Kindness Jar!

"Great things are wrought through simple and small things.
Like the small flecks of gold that accumulate over time into a large treasure,
our small and simple acts of kindness and service will accumulate into a life filled with love
for Heavenly Father, devotion to the work of the Lord Jesus Christ,
and a sense of peace and joy each time we reach out to one another.

Elder M. Russell Ballard

This is the jar that I keep little notes that I've written down
all of the kind service that has been given me
since Alain passed away.

I really don't know what I would have done without
all the help I've been given.
Most of my fear has come in the form of
feeling so lost without his constant
upkeep of our home, yard, cars, etc.

I know now...
and I am so grateful
that I am being watched over

I never... ever... want to forget
the kindness of others!

Your so good! That's a great way to remember when I would be having a bad day or something. No wonder your so wonderful!

This is a great idea for everyone, how else would we be able to remember all the blessings that come, we forget so easily. Thank you for sharing!! I will have a jar on my table within the hour!
