Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season and a very Happy New Year! Our month was busy...filled with good food and fun times spent with family & friends.
Although I didn't keep up on blog posting, I did continue with the 25 days of giving during the month of December. It was a great to wake up in the morning thinking..."what can I give today?"
hugs and kisses
a helping hand
donations (clothes & money)
a cup of hot chocolate to a Salvation Army bell ringer (on a cold, cold day)
a smile to someone who needed one
a kind word (I called the manager of a store to compliment a cashier)
the gift of fun & laughter
a prayer for someone in need
Christmas gifts to elderly ladies in a nursing home (who didn't have any family)
the gift of making memories with (and for) my kids
healthy meals (which is hard to do with everyone's schedules)
the gift of keeping family traditions (like our advent calendar)
myself the gift of peace & quiet
the gift of keeping in touch with family & friends
flowers to a friend
the gift of paying it forward
Best wishes for a happy and healthy 2012!
