“And the Grinch, with his Grinch-feet ice-cold in the snow, stood puzzling and puzzling, how could it be so? It came without ribbons. It came without tags. It came without packages, boxes or bags. And he puzzled and puzzled til his puzzler was sore. Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn’t before. What if Christmas, he thought doesn’t come from a store? What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more?”
If I could choose something that was ‘a little bit more’ than clothes or books or gift certificates for my family, it would be:
To take away stress from my Dad’s life
To take away the worry from my Mom’s life
To give Meg and Matt strength to continue to work together as a (great) team
To help Patrick to stay on his path to success
To make Kelly realize how talented she is
To promise Molly that everything will be just fine. That growing up is tough, but she’s doing a great job at it
And to tell Colin that I’ll continue to love him and make him laugh every day
We’ve had a lovely Christmas today! Ch-ch-ch-check it out:
My kindness for today:
To be quite honest I usually don’t put money in the basket at church – not because I’m a cheapo, or a bad person – because I never have cash on me. Today I made sure I had cash and brought some with me. Christmas means putting money in the basket.
I also helped out with cleaning after dinner, and let’s be honest – I do not enjoy that – but I did it anyway, because I knew it would be appreciated and I knew I’d get yelled at if I didn’t.
