A walk with a purpose.

1. Write little notes with inspiring and uplifting words.

2. Label them "read me."

3. Place them in visible spots in a well-traveled part of town.

Your kids will love it when you read each paper out loud before you place it on a car or fence, or wherever you feel so inclined.

It may seem like something small, but I tell you, with a young child in each arm, the small things are the only things of which I am capable.

I'd rather do something small than nothing at all.

"Have I done any good in the world today? Have I helped anyone in need? Have I cheered up the sad, and made someone feel glad? If not, I have failed indeed." -Will L. Thompson (1847-1909)

Thank you Nie Nie, for sharing this idea, ever so long ago.

Thank you Rach from playing house for inviting us on such a grand adventure!
