Hope you're all feeling spirit this season. Please remember it is not about how many gifts you buy or how fancy your decorations are but about love and appreciation. Today more than ever what our world needs is kindness and togetherness. My best childhood memories aren't the presents I unwrapped but the memories I made with people I loved and the traditions that made our family feel special. My little people are definitely challenged with seeing past all the things they want and their 3 page christmas lists... I am trying to teach them to see this time of year as an opportunity to give and that within giving we receive more than materialistic things can offer.
So we have donated clothes together, made a few cold weather survival kits for some locals we noticed are without a roof over their heads and we've also been enjoying making gifts and christmas tree decorations together as a family.
It's a tiny step in the right direction and hopefully we can make this tradition and build on it. We have been blessed so much lately and I never want to take it for granted and always want to continue to pay kindness forward.
Gratitude is a magical thing, just as magical as Christmas time if you ask me 🎄
