Sorry I haven't been able to blog much this week, but I have been busy helping with the local toy drive. I felt honored to help in this cause this year. In years past, I had always been too busy to be able to be a part of this, but this year our schedule opened up and my husband and I were able to help. Our fire department hosts this toy drive every year. The leaders of this are friends of ours. We feel helping in this was a priveledge. Yesterday, I had the opportunity to help pass out the toys to the families and it was just an awesome experience. It was so great to see the smiles on those parents' faces. They were all kind and warm and very grateful. I praise God that our community gave this year, in order for these families to have gifts for their children under the tree this year. I thought of a wonderful song that came out last year and wanted to share it with you all. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t2ulYpoNXC0
Have you thought about giving of yourself during this season? There are many ways to give this year. You can give money or food to a local food bank, volunteer at a local shelter, or just make cookies for a neighbor who may be alone during this Christmas. GIVE THIS CHRISTMAS AWAY!!!!!
