I got my bucket "filled"
My 9 year-old daughter reused a plastic container. She surprised me with a “bucket” and “happy” fillers for me. Inside, are new pencils, pens, erasers, gum, and more. She also included a note to tell me she loved me.
Have you filled a “bucket” for someone today? Thank someone, surprise someone, make someone feel special and appreciated today.
It's funny, because I often tell my kids to stop dipping their spoons into my happy vat (space around me), to encourage them to stay positive throughout the day. If the are being negative, I often express this, to remind them their words and actions can suck the happiness out of someone's day.
I'm tickled to receive my "bucket" of happiness. I will have to use my pens and pencils to write today.
