It’s been a while since I gave some attention to the good deeds my children to………so today is one I am proud of.
Caitie and Adrienne are out this morning shopping with a child. Our local police department has a “shop with a cop” program. We don’t have enough officers to shop with all the kids, so volunteers from the community help too. Basically they are one on one with a child, the child has been given money to shop for family Christmas gifts or a gift for themselves. Caitie helped last year and she said her little boy had a list of what he wanted to buy for his family. He went a couple of dollars over, and she covered it for him.
Giving back in our communities is so important all year, and yet somehow we think of Christmas in a very special way, a time when it seems especially sad that a child may receive so little, when many of us have so much.
We give to children in other ways too………….but I am especially proud of my girls, for taking their time, up and out before 6:30 on their first day of winter break, to go out and give to someone else.
Oh, and I just want to share a puppy picture, because she is so darn cute!!
