"The Gift of Giving”  


It's sort of a "give in" that this time of year is filled with gift giving.
Yet, Let's take some time and embrace the gifts, big and small and all around us from anywhere to anyone.  

I joined the local MOMs club about 5 yrs ago.  This group is part of a national group of Moms Helping Moms. Every year one of the groups "service projects" is Adopt-a-Family.  Every year the group organizes it, puts it out to members, collects items and delivers gifts to a local social services organization.  Every year I've proudly and gratefully participated in it.  

It feels incredibly good to help some one.  And to model that for our children is important, too.  I've taken my daughter with me to the store to pick out a gift for another child.  I can see in her eyes how she feels good about it too.  

How blessed we all are to have each other to help one another.
How wonderful to fill a family's holiday, when it is needed most.
How grateful for our own holiday celebrations and gifts.  

Bless everyone.  

Lisa G.
