Have you all seen the new video circulating through social media about the delivery driver’s dancing reaction to the snacks one homeowner left out for him? If you haven’t you should run and check it out HERE. It just makes my day to see someone so happy over something so little.
Every holiday season my online ordering is going up. With little kids, I sure don’t want to fight my way into a brick and mortar store for a $10 toy, a roll of wrapping paper or even toilet paper if we’re being honest.
Online ordering is LIFE.
Browse. Click “Add to Cart.” Check out.
A couple of days later. BAM. On my doorstep.
UPS, USPS, and FedEx are the real Santas in my opinion. No two ways about it. They’re working long hours in a short amount of time and making all the magic happen. But I like to remember that they’re someone’s dad, brother, son, uncle and cousin. After they work 12-14 hour days they go home to the same struggles I do. Laundry, dishes, finding dinner, broken appliances (like why always in December – no one wants an appliance for their Christmas gift) and an assortment of other things that need their attention. Including children to cuddle and family to love.
And if the smallest token of kindness and gratitude I can offer them during this busy season is a smile, a cheerful greeting and a basket of goodies then I’m all for it.
It’s the simplest thing to do. Find a small basket, crate or cute box and fill it with assorted individual-sized snacks. I would suggest a few sweets, a few salty snacks, packs of gum and candy along with drinks. Water, Coke, Gatorade or even Capri Suns will work. Add this printable sign and you’re good to go!
This is the perfect holiday activity to do with your children. As my daughter tells me, “Sharing is caring!”
