|Santa its been a crap year!! (and this is actually ME as a baby circa 1971)|
BUT, I am well aware that our life is pretty spectacular compared to some.
Through daily life and blogging I hear so many stories of so many people much worse off than us.
So I've decided to do a little giving at this time of year, with a message of love and peace and I'm calling it the Random Acts of Christmas Ornament Giving.
|a decoration made by Miss K last year|
I have been making 30 handmade Christmas ornaments this weekend and I will be sending them out to 30 people who have touched my life this year, in whatever way - however big or small.
People who have inspired me with their strength, those who have taken on challenges placed before them.
People who I don't even know in real life but their stories are on my heart.
People who have shown me the blessing of a beautiful friendship.
People who have challenged me, criticised me (eek thats a tough one.. I might have to forgive them - *gulp*).
I hear my kids running around the house singing at the top 'Happy Birthday Jesus, Happy Birthday Jesus, Happy Birthday Jesus, Thank you for being my friend each day, Thank you for being my friend'
And it reminds me, Jesus is the reason for the season! A gift for all of us. Without his birth there would be no Christmas, whether you are a believer or not.
I want to spread a message of hope and love. To those who have shown me love, those who have hurt me and those who don't even know me.
