I see it every day….there are so many ways you can help out this Holiday season…
from charities like Water for Christmas…or Toys for Tots…or Feed my starving Children.
So much out there…so many places to give.
But…have you ever just looked around to who lives near you …
or what about someone you work with.
There are so many people struggling these days….i mean…really struggling.
I’m sure you remember me chatting about my sweet neighbor girl….i’ve written about
her a few times before.
Her single mom is raising her all alone…and even though she works full time..she is still struggling.
I can’t imagine.
Let me tell you how my heart was filled with joy when i went to my book club on Tuesday..
and every single one of my friends had bought gifts for my neighbor girl.
My friends took it upon themselves to open their heart and look local this year…
so this little girls could reap the joy of having oodles of gifts for Christmas.
Real gifts…..from their hearts.
Gifts that are going to make my neighbor girl sing with joy because of the love that was put into them.
Even one of my good friends talked to her church….
and that church decided to sponsor my neighbor girl and her mom for Christmas.
They paid her electric bill for the month…they bought her warm clothes…and put a smile on her face.
My heart is full today.
I watch my neighbor girl three days a week…i know what goes on in her home…
and i realize how much she means to us…..and am so thankful she was
put in our lives.
There are so many places to help this season…..
but sometimes just looking out your front door …and seeing what’s right in front of you..
is all you need to do.
