In Search of the Giving Tree
One of the most rewarding activities of the Christmas Season is my involvement with about a dozen women who come together to organize and distribute presents for our Christmas Giving Tree at out church. Despite the frustrations and time alloted, it is an amazing thing to see these women I value as friends give of their hearts to care so much about families in need.
This year, Lisa and I voluteered to pick out the tree. We got to go to my family friend's, Sharon's, tree farm with Michele and her kids as well as they were already down for Thanksgiving. It was a quick trip, but very festive. What a way to get in the mood of thankfulness!
