This morning I wrapped presents for children with parents in prison. The experience made me cry, imagining what the kids' lives were really like and that maybe that one gift I wrapped would be all they would receive this year. This season really is about giving, as cliche as that may sound. Giving is an act of love. It is in our human nature to want to accumulate more for ourselves, but when we give, we consider others as being more important than ourselves- this is SELFLESS, an action of love! You should check out Angel Tree, an awesome organization that gives you an opportunity to bless a child. All this wrapping got me thinking just how touching it is to receive a gift. It truly feels even better to give one! I decided half the beauty of a gift is in the wrapping. I grabbed some things around my house, like cooking string, snips of branches off of my christmas tree, and leaves that look like holly from a tree outside. Adding these simple things make your gifts that much more beautiful. With a little effort looking around the house I was able to make these gifts appear that much more special.
