I’m repaying kindness shown to me with Kleenex® Brand products as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars #KleenexCare
Making friends has never been easy for me. As much as I love people, I’m still very much an introvert. When other folks are hanging out and bonding, it’s likely that I’m home by myself. However, everywhere I go, there’s always a few people who just won’t let that happen. They refuse to let me be antisocial, and even while I’m kicking and screaming as they pull me out of myself, I always end up feeling grateful for their efforts.
The women leaders at my church are like that. Incredibly sweet and loving, one of them always notices if someone needs a little extra encouragement to get involved. Since the first day I started attending the church, I’ve been embraced as a sister. Their kindness has meant everything to me. As a single mom living across the country from my entire family, I needed them desperately when I first moved to California. From advice to fellowship, and really, just plain friendship, these women have really been there for me for the last couple of years.
I wanted to do something to acknowledge the kindness that Mary (my mother-in-law), Sugar, Josie, Baniah, Ann, and Kim have shown me. It’s not they expect it. They have hearts to serve, which makes this surprise even more fun to put together. I thought about how they are always taking care of others around them. Thanks to some help from Kleenex® Brand, I made Take Care Kits so that these lovely women can spend a little time tending to themselves. When I think about Kleenex brand, I think about caring for others. I mean, it’s the brand I purchase when the most important person in the world, my baby girl, isn’t feeling well. In addition to the stylish individual packs of Kleenex brand facial tissue, I also added lip balm, tea, chocolate and a handwritten note expressing my gratitude and love. I’m truly thankful for their friendship, and strive to be as sweet to others as they’ve been to me. I hope this token helps them to know how much I appreciate them.
