What Christmas is all about...

I know I said that a give away was coming.... & it still is... but as I sat down today to post about it I saw this artical that really spoke what Christmas is all about to me & I felt I needed to share....


Secret Santas in 3 states spread cheer, $100 bills:

I wont share the whole story here... I want you to go read it... but I do want to share that to me... THIS is what Christmas is all about... I have been in the shoes of the woman that was blessed by this secret santa... I know what it is like to have nothing & small babys to care for in the dead of winter... I know how proud we are as mommas to not ask for help & keep trudging along like nothing is wrong praying every night that there will be enough food on the table or that the heat will be on that day.

Please.... be a blessing to a stranger this holiday season.... & all year around for that matter... offer to buy the elderly ladies groceries that is standing behind you in the check out line.... or get a tank of gas for the family of 10 shoved into the rusty old chevy at the pump next to you.... do they "deserve it?" who cares... just DO IT... its not your job to decide who deserves what & when... its just your job to help anyone & everyone you can when you can...

Be the blessing friends... & you wont belive the blessings it will bring!
Happy Holidays!

you are so right

yes, when we give to charitable organizations we should check them out

but when we see someone who appears to be in need and we feel moved to help, we should

now if I would just practice what I preach a little more!!
