THIS is what christmas is about....

A few weeks ago - I expressed an interest in helping out a cafe mom family on here, and I got a large response.

Well it boiled down to 5 Families, 11 children that I wanted to help.

I'm not a rich girl, so I solicited my family and my friends, online and in real life, and everyone gave and gave so generously.

I haven't had such a warm, loving joyful feeling at christmas like I have now in years and years.. to see so many of the people I love and surround myself with give , without thought, when we all have so little ourselves, I have to say its truly breath taking.

Of course its great to give a few trinkets to the boys and girls out there in need and help their parents face the holiday with a bit less of a heavy heart.

Everyone is thanking ME for doing this - and I honestly have to thank YOU ALL everyone who participated, in need or gift (some of you in both!)  I think I have gotten the best christmas ever!!!!

 

THIS is what love does!
