ln our lives, we come across many people. Lucky are we, if we ever get to find one of those one of a kind persons, that one that goes that extra mile to do something in life that makes them extraordinary. I've met many people in my 41 years, and while there have been handful of very special people, only a few have been extraordinarily special. Though I am not the nicest mom, or even the best mom, I have tried to teach my kids to be good people, to have good hearts. I believe that when you Give Extra in life, get your extra back. This year one of my one kids has stepped past just being a special person and officially become one of those extraordinary people that come along only once in a while. 

Today her sisters and I put a little basket of extra goodies for her, filled with some of her favorite little things. This is not her holiday gift as she already got something really nice that she had asked Santa for, this is just a little Extra basket to show our appreciation of her.

We wanted to thank her and let her know that we appreciate how she has come forward and taken on a responsibility that is not going to be easy. And even though it may not seem like we've even noticed, in a very big way she has become our hero. 

We had a lot of fun shopping for all the little goodies to go into her special basket. Her favorite thing in the world is gum, so it was a no brainer to grab a bunch of packs of Extra Gum from Walmart and wrap them up super cute for her. I grabbed a few of the flavors including Watermelon and Mixed Berry, we love mixed berry and all those fruity flavors!

The holidays are such a great time to show everyone our appreciation and it doesn't take a lot of money or time to thank all of those special people in our lives. When you think about it, look how many people make a difference in your day:

  • the children's teachers, these are the people that can sometimes spend more hours in a day than we do with our kids.
  • The crossing guard at the school who makes sure our little people get to safety.
  • the post man who delivers all of those important letters and cards from loved ones.
  • the UPS man who delivers those pricey holiday gifts, my UPS man is here almost daily.
  • Even your favorite barista at Starbucks deserves some Extra love this holiday season!!

So many people deserve some Extra appreciation this holiday season! Why not grab some Extra gum at Walmart and make everyone lovely little packages with a thank you card to show them we care, we notice, all that they do. I am going to be putting Extra gum in all of the teachers holiday mugs and other small thank you gifts. Who are you giving Extra love to this holiday season?
