So it's officially "That Time Of Year".....
(The most wonderful time of the year? Isn't that a song? ::wink::)
What do YOU want for Christmas? :)
(and please don't ask my four year old. You'll get an alphabetized, color coded list with bullet points.)
Seriously though, I love hearing the things on everyone else's Christmas lists. Partially because it gives me ideas for my own (hehe) and because I really enjoy seeing what people value, what is important to them, what they desire. It can be fascinating. Clothes, money, toys, gadgets, gift cards, home decor... ?
This holiday season as you make your list (and I really do want to know what you want!) try to remember to schedule time, money or energy into giving. Not just giving the gifts you always give or make for family members, but for someone special. Someone who might not get a gift otherwise. Someone who needs some holiday cheer. A little bit goes a LONG way there. (Think homeless shelters, the kid at school who wears the same thing every week or who you know doesn't have a good home life, soup kitchens, church adoption projects, etc.)
PS - Quick poll: Are gift cards to stores you really like awesome or boring? Be honest!
