Being Thankful for our Health and the Meaningful People in Our Lives {#KleenexCares}

The arrival of the holiday season means many things. The leaves have all fallen off of the trees, the weather here in the Midwest is reliably chilly, and we have already experienced our first winter colds — complete with coughing, sneezing and runny noses.

While I am understandably frustrated with the way that my girls are extra cranky, tired and rundown when they have a cold, I do try to remember to be thankful for our overall health. What is an annoying cold when there are so many people out there that are dealing with much more severe illnesses and ailments?

Right now, Kleenex brand, America's softest tissue, is helping remind me that the moments of unexpected thoughtfulness and being grateful for the meaningful people in our lives is what matters most thanks to their Softness Worth Sharing initiative.

Kleenex Softness Worth Sharing

During cold and flu season, sharing a Kleenex tissue is a great way to give a bit of comfort in a small gesture that can make a big difference. Whether you pull one out of your pocket or you send a Kleenex Brand Care Pack, the small display of kindness can make all the difference for family and friends.

Remember, to send a Kleenex Brand Care Pack, you simply have to visit your local retailer, purchase a Kleenex brand bundle pack and redeem the code on the box by visiting and following the directions (while supplies last).

Being grateful doesn't necessarily mean going out of your way to display how you feel, as even a small gift like this can make all the difference.

Kleenex Brand Care Pack

This season, I am trying to show my children the importance of showing others that they are thankful to have them in our life through the small things — extra cards, phone calls, baked goods, and other small gestures of caring. We are so grateful for our family and friends that Thanksgiving is the perfect time to make sure that they know it!

At the same time, I hope to impart caring to my kids simply by doing my best by taking care of them when they catch yet another cold or case of the sniffles. Resting on the couch, a warm bowl of soup, big hugs and more are important yet simple ways to make everyone feel better!

Team those with a soft, comforting Kleenex brand tissue and hopefully we'll make it through this cold and flu season feeling special, loved and gracious... as will the recipients of our Kleenex Brand Care Packs.

What small things do you do to show others how important they are in your life?

I wrote this review while participating in an ambassador program by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of the Kleenex brand and received product samples and a promotional item to thank me for taking the time to participate.

I love to make a baked treat or meal for someone to let them know I care. I love to cook, and I think people appreciate the time and love put into it.
