A Rose for you (RAK #2)

Hello everyone!!!  Hope you're all having a great Tuesday. 

If you've read my blog before then you know that I've been letting my oldest son do a RAK to teach him important lessons that all of us should know.  Yesterday he went with me to run some errands and decided he wanted to give a rose to another lady that we ran into while we were out.  Needless to say he learned more that just one lesson this time.  It was an older lady that he chose on his own, she seemed less than inthused to be getting anything from a little boy.  The look on his face when we got back to the car was more than devastating, he asked me why she didn't say thank you.  I had to explain to him that sometimes people have bad days and that maybe she didn't realize what he was trying to do, but I'm sure she would smile when she got to thinking about it later when she got home.  And to remember that even if not everyone seemed grateful that he needed to keep doing it because someday someone would really need one of the roses he gave them and it would make their day. 

So I guess my point for this blog is to remember that no matter what rocks life throws in our faces we should keep smiling at other people even if they don't smile back.  That may be just the smile they need to keep them going that day.

I hope you all smiled today and learned some lesson that you will keep with you forever. 

Happy Crafting!!
