A Christmas Thought for You
Have you ever stopped and thought of how lucky and blessed most of us are?
We take so much for granted especially over the festive season.
The kids are adding daily to their wish lists.
Gifts are beginning to pile under the tree.
Delicious aromas are wafting from the kitchen.
We adults are planning parties, huge lunches at friends or in restaurants.
Gift buying for our loved ones and friends all just a frenzy of activity and spending albeit a recession is on us and of course the much needed new outfits !!!
All just SPEND, SPEND AND CHARGE, CHARGE.
Please stop for a moment and think about those that will not be shopping, will not be planning a huge meal, will not be purchasing a new outfit nor giving their kids gifts.
I ask each and everyone of you to go out and buy an extra gift in the food line and gift wrap it. Even if all you have spare to purchase is a tin of baked beans don’t worry wrap it up.
Now starting from next week carry this gift in your car and open you eyes and look around you. You will find someone, stop and hand it to them, saying with love from me to you.
I guarantee that this small gesture will give you more joy than all the gifts you have selected and the joy you will give the receiver will be incredible no matter how small your gift is.
To all of you have a Happy Festive Season and please give a gift to someone you think looks deserving even though you do not know them
