Oh boy, we’re getting down to the wire. The tree is up and I’ve finally started my shopping. Nothing like saving it to the last minute huh?
This weekend I did one of my favorite holiday things. Me, along with a few other women from my church volunteered a morning to go and wrap hundreds (yes, hundreds) of gifts for children in the city’s foster care system. A sore back is a small price to pay when I think of a happy smile on a child’s face on Christmas day. Personally, I think this is what the holiday should be all about. The joy of sharing time and love in service of others.
