Y’all know I am a fan of Ding Dong Ditching!
Last year we Ding Dong Ditched some diapers to a sweet friend of ours who had just had a baby (you can read more about that HERE).
This year, with spring starting, we felt it was the right time to do another Ding Dong Ditch to make someone’s day.
In our neighborhood, there is a woman several doors down from us who lost her husband a few years ago.
When the Happy Buddy and Happy Baby and I go on walks, I’ve noticed that she does not have a doormat.
With all those April Showers coming, we figured a new doormat was a necessity!
Instead of just giving her one, we thought, “Wouldn’t it be wonderful if a new doormat just magically appeared on her doorstep??”
So that is what we did!
I picked up a new doormat at Home Depot for about 10 bucks.
Then we wrote her a little note.
We headed down the street, quietly snuck up to her door, set the doormat and note down, and raced off!
We’re praying it will be a happy springtime blessing whenever she comes home.
Happy Ding Dong Doormat Ditch-ing! 🙂
What a sweet thing to do , you have inspired me to do something similar
I suppose a cake or a pie wouldn’t work, could be a little messy. Just kidding, so incredibly thoughtful and imagine the reward to see the joy and fruit of your surprise. Love it!
Such a sweet and caring thing to do. She is blessed with a special neighbor and will love it!
That is a great example for your children!
You are such a sweet person. You’re always thinking of others. God bless you!

This is so sweet! What a fun idea! This makes me want to find a neighbor to do something sweet for :o)
You just gave me the biggest smile while reading this. What an amazing heart you have, and how wonderful to bring your children up spreading the happiness. I can imagine the smile on her face, and the warmth in her heart when she opened her door.
God bless you and your family! <3
