Hello and Happy February!

Thank you so much for all the lovely responses from last month. I'm glad so many people liked the kitty cat coloring pages.

I've been thinking a lot about kindness lately. It can be found if you look for it. It could be the person that keeps the bird feeder filled year round, the young person that holds the door open for my mom, the grocery clerk that offers to help with the heavy boxes.

And it's important to teach our children to be kind. A long time ago now, when our son was a Cub Scout the favorite thing that the boys did was help paint and fix up an old lady's house. That was better to them that all the outings and carnivals, treats, fishing trips and camp outs. They liked all those fun things but helping do something good for someone else was the thing that they remember even now, ten years later.

Wishing you all good things,


"O terque quaterque beatum”
We are three or four times blessed.

Kindness Cards

Here's a page of little thank you cards to pass to folks when you catch them being awesome. The illustrations are from paintings that I've done this last year. Make a game with your kids of giving out these cards when people are being especially nice.
