The shopping is done, presents wrapped, cookies baked and just the cleaning and meal prep remains. This year December was so nice for me. I spent a little more time making the less fortunate a part of the holiday planning. Everywhere I went: the college, the library, the grocery store, people were collecting toys, food, coats, school supplies and of course money (Salvation Army Red Kettles) for those in need. I loaded my car with non-perishables, hats, mittens, socks, new toys. Everywhere I went I was prepared to give. It felt so good.
We'll be celebrating with family at our home on Christmas Day. Hope all of you who celebrate Christmas have a wonderful time connecting and relaxing with friends and loved ones.
