Every opportunity that we get, it is important to try to do the right thing. “Do the right thing, even when nobody is watching”… that is what we tell our kids. That is what we want to teach them. I am happy to have this post Sponsored by Single Edition Media on behalf of La Brea Bakery.
We need to find ways to help others. I find that the way that I can best serve others is through meals, because it is easy for me to handle in this chapter of my life, with our four young kids. Delivering food is something that I can handle with four kids. It is also a great teaching tool for our kids- a way to show them how to give back and help.
I wanted to share this with you because I think that we need to serve others… to always think about how we can help others and be the hero in their life.
In the past, our kids have dressed up like Super Heros and we took food to our local food bank. They liked feeling like “heroes” in one way or another and we just told them about how this is TRULY the way to be a hero! This is an easy way that anyone can help someone else. (dressing the kids up was just a way to SHOW them how when we serve, we are HEROes to someone else…)
