The greatest pleasure I know is to do a good action by stealth, and to have it found out by accident." Charles Lamb
I can not wait for Christmas this year. It is my favorite holiday not for the gifts but for the gift giving. This year I am going to play secret Santa as many chances as I can get.
Playing Secret Santa got easier with Facebook. Just this week one of my single co-workers posted this about her son. He wanted to draw and couldn't find anything to draw with so she heard him say "Dear Santa please send me something to write with this year I love you very much Thank you. So Melissa is going to find a either a box of crayons or colored pencils in her office with her son's name and from Santa thank you for believing in me I believe in you written on it. I think she will be thrilled and I more so.
Every year at out church we have the giving tree you take a paper bulbs off and it has a gift idea under 10 dollars for a charity in the area. One year me and my daughter made the hats and scarves that the children asked for we always hope we can see someone wearing them one day that would be an added bonus, It makes you feel good that another family can have a little spirit of Christmas.
Our grocery store always has prefilled grocery bags that are worth five or ten dollars they contain gifts for the food self in our area it is nice to know some family will have a warm meal on my extra change.
This Christmas I hope you embrace the spirit of giving as I have it makes you feel richer and happier and safe.
