I kind of started a holiday theme with this morning’s post, so it seems I should stick with it. It would seem that I’ve found my holiday spirit! (Though it still doesn’t seem like Thanksgiving is a mere hours away.)
Every year I think there is no way that the recipients of our holiday charity program at work could possibly break my heart because the ones in the year’s prior already had. And every year they break my heart all over again! This year is no exception. I finally got the last of my needs’ list submitted today and I spent a good chunk of the afternoon trying to translate those into gift tags for people to select from.
The good news is that I work with a bunch of really great and generous people. The better news is that these families who have asked for so little will find themselves showered with so much. We have four families and about a dozen senior citizens to help this year. For most of these people, all they are asking for are food, blankets and cleaning supplies or maybe a coat. Well, I think they may find just a little bit more … *grins*
Yeah. That holiday spirit is accounted for now.
