Our New Christmas Eve Tradition

Posted by   + Show Post
So, I got a call from a friend asking if I'd come help her wrap gifts, put food into boxes and help deliver to families. Cool beans, that's right up my alley and she knows it. I told Bun to go get dressed and what we're going to do. I explained that we're going to give food and gifts to children who otherwise this year wouldn't have any, he went grabbed a toy he hasn't played with for awhile and some food out of his cabinet and was like "let's go!" That touched me that on some level he's starting to get my mantra of "to whom much is given, much is required!" and to see him be so enthused about wanting to help others. He might get to unwrap a gift tonight.

He's responding well to your loving care just like your pretty house plant that you showed me.

Thank you, same to you!
I tried to keep him going until midnight and then he told me he had to go to bed or else Santa wouldn't come! So all gifts were unwrapped this morning.

We usually do the feed the hungry thing at Thanksgiving, Christmas, and MLK day. Last year we just did thanksgiving and it was so crowded that I couldn't really keep up with my Mr. Friendly and I decided not again until he gets a little older. However, him understanding that everything we have is a blessing and as such we should bless others is important to me.
