We have a program at school called Rachel's Challenge. Rachel was killed in the shootings at Colombine several years ago. She wrote her in her diary about how acts of kindness can change people's lives and that one person can make a difference.
Riley has really taken ahold of this program and wants to do kind things all the time. Today she got down on her hands and knees with a wet washcloth and began to scrub the kitchen floor. I told her that she didn't have to clean the floor - that I'd do it later.
She said "But Mom I want to do an act of kindness for you!"
She said that she was tired but that she had to do what she had to do (hmm.. know where she's heard that before!) and that she wanted to do something kind for me. Then she said that she was doing Rachel's challenge and doing kind things.
She is amazing.
