Do you guys remember my post about putting together a shoebox for Operation Christmas Child?
If not, well, about a month ago, Mr. P and I put together a shoebox for Operation Christmas Child. We choose to give our shoebox to a little girl between the age of 5-9. Inside the box was a little teddy bear, a pack of cards, crayons, and a coloring book!! Why those gifts? Well, a teddy bear because we both realized that was our favorite gift to receive, a pack of cards to play games with friends and allow her to improve her math skills, and of course, what little girl wouldn’t like to COLOR?! Fun, right?
Well, great news!! I just received notice that our package was delivered to a little girl in Mexico (click on the link to read some inspiring stories from Mexico)!! What an impact we just made on a little girl this Christmas season. Truly AMAZING!!
My heart is filled with happiness and I feel all warm and fuzzy!! I’m jumping for joy!! Can you tell I’m just giddy from this experience?? Because this is truly the spirit of the holiday season. Giving!! GIVING!!
So, sing your Christmas songs, finish wrapping your presents, but remember to stop, and give thanks to those you love this weekend. Just a simple, random hug will go a long way!
What have you done this Holiday Season to give back?
