This Holiday Season, I'm Doing Something Different
I enjoy looking at the holiday lights and the Christmas trees adorned in all their finery, but this year, I won't be contributing to either of these traditions.
Having only so much disposable income limits my spending -- as it does most everyone's. I no longer have children at home, and my grandchildren have Christmas trees at their own homes.
I've decided I will enjoy the decorations that others have, using the funds I would have spent on them to make someone else's Christmas a little nicer.
I know two small children who won't wake up on Christmas morning with but a package or two apiece, so I'd like to make a small difference there. They need never know I contributed -- that's not important. What I do feel is important is for them to have some joy and full tummies on the day of giving.
It's a small, small act that will only make a difference for one family, but I'm already beginning to feel the warmth of it.
