I have 3 things left to get and Christmas shopping is DONE. Jealous much???
Each year I try to get involved in the community, especially at Christmas, to help others. In the past we've participated in Candy Cane Corner and Toys for Tots, food drives, blanket drives and other non-profit projects to give a little to others.
This year we are bringing a little extra cheer home. Each of us is choosing a nearby family from our community and sending a little love their way this holiday season. There are many middle class families struggling this year. The double dipping economy, job loss, divorce, lack of health care and just plain loneliness hits families hard.
You know my mantra about service by now, if you've read this blog regularly. So here we are again finding ways to spread a little joy and get outside ourselves.
I haven't worked out the details, but something to do with a few goodies, a few kind words and a gift of service or two to the families struggling in my neighborhood. If you have any ideas I'd love to hear them.
If you want a Christmas to remember, try this idea with your own family. You won't be disappointed.
Merry Christmas (early, really early)
