Give A Box of Sunshine
I don't know if you agree, but this winter has felt especially long! As a result of a recent sad time at our house (that I'll write about in a future post), a thoughtful neighbor brought me some vibrant daffodils. Just seeing the bright yellow flowers cheered me up for a bit and I was reminded of a prior post that I wrote - Giving a BOX OF SUNSHINE to a Friend.
I gave my first BOX OF SUNSHINE when my friend lost her job. I filled a box with fun and practical items that were yellow. Since then, I've made several for friends who were facing challenging times. Shopping for yellow items in the store turns into an exciting treasure hunt!
You can print a pre-made label for your BOX OF SUNSHINE here.
