Dear Fellow Crafters,
December is the month of generosity. Generosity is defined as the “trait’ of being willing to give your time and money. But to me, generosity is not all about the money. It’s about love and caring and paying it forward.
It’s hard to keep it all balanced when you’re a parent. You have to deal with Santa and all those sales versus “Jesus is the Reason for the Season”. So if you’re wondering how to practice generosity this month, I have some hints:
- drop spare change in the Salvation Army buckets
- offer to babysit for a friend
- take cookies to an elderly neighbor
- collect food and personal items for a homeless shelter or home for veterans
- donate extra craft items to a school or library
- put cash in an envelope and donate it anonymously to a church that you do not attend.
- pay the toll of the person behind you
- give a little extra to a waiter or waitress
- make greeting card for people in hospitals
- join a group of carolers
- help an elderly person in a grocery store
- listen to people without interrupting
and finally, when you are surfing the web and find an inspirational article or sentiment, send it to someone who you haven’t heard from in a while. You never know how much they need your computer “hug”.
Have a Happy Holiday Season!
