I've gotten almost all my Christmas shopping done. Can you believe that? I'm so much better at this than you are. Kidding, just kidding. But seriously, I have only to buy two gifts for my dear husband, who gets the same boring things year after year after year...clothes. Yep, I can announce it one here, because not only does he get the same boring thing, he wants to pick them out. What's a wife to do?
I still have a few little things to add to my oldest daughters present, which I'm looking forward to doing since it's such a fun one. But of course, I can't tell you, since I know she's squeezing the computer screen right now hoping I'll tell. She hates surprises.
I even found something super cute for my mother in law, who is VERY hard to buy for.
So just three gifts and a whole lot of stuffing stockers. Stocking stuffers are a BIG deal in our house. I'll give you a run down on another day.
Today's Advent activity:
Write a letter to tell someone how much they mean to you.
I love this activity. How often do we take the time to JUST write a letter expressing our feelings for someone? We just don't. These kinds of things should be done all the time, but at least we make an effort at Advent to include them.
Imagine going to the mailbox and finding a letter, telling you how important you are to someone, and how thankful they are for you. Nice, huh?
Even if you aren't doing Advent with us this year (though it's not too late to join in) I challenge you to send that letter. You'll feel good that you did it...and someone will have a smile all day. And they just may "pass it on".
