Advent Day 5: Christmas Kindness Countdown

Welcome to Day 5 of the Kind Acts Christmas Advent Calendar!

Today's art piece is another mixed media on board with digital text overlay. This is another work in progress from the Kelly Rae Robert's book Taking Flight, which I highly recommend if you are interested in learning mixed media painting techniques.

Today's kind act from my People4Good iPhone app, in honor of back to work Monday is:

Treat a colleague to lunch

That's a total win-win situation I think :)

I have to tell you a kindness story that happened to me yesterday. One of the moms from my sons preschool class was chatting with me at the Farmer's Market. I am currently 15 weeks pregnant with my second child, and she knows I have been having a rough time with this pregnancy. She not only offered to help with anything I needed, but came back 5 minutes later to make sure I had her phone number! So sweet! That really made my day.

Hope you are having a beautiful day, and that a little kindness comes your way:)
