"Mom, I think I'm going to overflow your bucket," my son, Jordan, told me as he gave me a tight hug. Last summer we read a book about filling buckets, sharing kindness with others. We made it a family goal to fill each other's buckets as often as we can. This can be done in a variety of ways: giving a hug, helping out with an extra chore, doing something without complaining, listening right away, etc.
"Mom, do you want to fill my bucket?" Jordan asked, shortly after the squeezable hug he had shared.
"Would you bring my toy cars downstairs?"
This little one is either sly or lazy. He definitely is resourceful and clever.
When is the last time you filled someone's bucket?
