Means A Little Bit More
As the Grinch would say, “Christmas is coming, it’s practically here!” At the stroke of midnight tonight it will officially be Christmas. Many of us had to cut way back on our Christmas shopping lists this year with a more practical approach to gift giving taking hold. Socks and gloves will be a familiar stocking stuffer this year at our house as well as lip balm and hand lotion. There’s also been a noticed increase across the nation of people who are reaching out to those less fortunate than themselves by donating not only their financial support but their personal time as well at food banks and shelters. The compassionate attitude of “there but for the grace of God go I” hasn’t been as prevalent in our country since the 1930’s. Though the economy has been slowly recovering many people still find themselves facing tough economic times, but the holidays don’t have to be about the biggest and most expensive gifts. Some of the most beautiful gifts are completely free. Even the Grinch figured out that, “perhaps Christmas doesn’t come from a store, perhaps Christmas means a little bit more”.
