Enjoy Christmas Day
Love yourself and love the season but focus on others
My many years raising funds for charities gave me a unique opportunity to see it s really true it s the giver who gets the gift.It is great fun to sit down and think about who really needs some help. Mita s husband is in Iraq. Babysit for her one Saturday so she can go shop for the kids and have lunch out with a friend. Give a Christmas party for the kids down at the shelter. (Tip Buy the very best candy, not the cheap bag stuff. The difference will be all yours.)Make homemade dog biscuits and deliver them to the animal shelter. If you re of another faith, volunteer to staff the homeless shelter Christmas Eve, or to staff the hospital ER Christmas Day. Put a jinglebell collar on your lovable Lab and take her to the nursing home. Call the dear octogenarian at your church and make a date to take her for a drive to look at Christmas lights and enjoy a little hot chocolate and Russian tea cakes with you afterwards.
