Well, this Friday found me working hard, but since I work out of my home I was able to do a little online shopping, all while multi tasking during a conference call. I am enjoying crossing off items on my list.
So far, I have finished shopping for six of the ten children I am helping this season. It was truly bittersweet reading the one item posted beside each child - no where did I see a cell phone or an ipad or an mp3 player - just simple things like shoes, hats and scarves.
Oh sure, there was the occasional firetruck or a baby doll, but more so were the things no child should have to wish for from Santa.
When I was a child, I had a list for Santa and I more times than not, I recall seeing most of it under the tree on Christmas morning. Seeing a child wish for a coat, wish for shoes, wish for socks.
It humbles me.
