Although we love going to the city to enjoy the culture you can't help but notice the large community of homeless people living in the city. Each year around Christmas (as well as times throughout the year) we head into the city with the intention of making a difference. This Christmas we decided to pack up some Christmas kits (that included sandwiches, apples, watter bottles, trail mix, toothpaste, toothbrushes, gloves and glow sticks). We pass them out to people who might not have as bright of a Christmas morning without a little unexpected cheer.
Honestly, it's one the the kid's favorite traditions.
Now, what am I tell you this? Simple.., what can you do to make a small difference in your community? We don't need to move mountains here folks. Just see a need, and find a way to meet it, simple as that. The fact that we had planned to do this the day after the tragic events in CT, seemed fitting. I know it does nothing to help those affected by this horrific event, but I hope it does a small part in restoring the faith in humanity.
I am super thankful to have a husband who is passionate about instilling such values into our children. I am sorry if this is out of line, but there is nothing sexier than watching your husband be a servant and great teacher. There I said it, and I am not sorry!
Don't worry we made sure to have a little extra fun while we were in the city as well!
Have a fantastic day! What holiday traditions are you celebrating with your family?
