This is our tree in our apt for 2012, we didn’t think it would fit into the small space but it did. Yay!
Are you good to people you don’t know? How, when and why?
I attempt to be good to all people, unless they are not good to me. For example I went to Wal-mart 12/29/11 and went to ask for some items at the deli. I asked the deli clerk for some ham and at first she was not very nice to me. She is probably a very good person just having a bad day, but she was a bit short with me. I paused for a few seconds and kept asking her for all the items I needed. She finally cracked a smile and ask me if I needed anything else. I said I was all done and thanked her for her help.
I could have handled it by not being good to her and snapping at her but I didn’t. I took a deep breath and was still good and polite to her.
I truly do attempt to be good to people I don’t know every day.

Some Random Acts of Kindness Resources
I am focusing on reducing our food budget for the time being. In the month of December our budget for our family of 4 was approximately 750.00. This include a new family member foster child who is currently living with us.
My goal for the month of December will be 700.00 including my Christmas baking gifts. I will do my best to get to that goal let’s see how I do later this month.
Do you have a food budget? What is your budget for your family?
