It’s getting close to Christmas-are you stressed? Are you running around too much? Feeling like you have too much to do? Or are you getting to enjoy the season? For the most part I am feeling pretty calm and enjoying the fun of the season (probably helps that my husband took the kids this afternoon so that I could get caught up on some things).
As the big day draws near I want to give you a challenge. Sometime in the next 10 days I want you to make sure to take them time to DO SOMETHING FOR SOMEONE.
Sure there are the gifts and the treats and the giving. But I want you to take the time to look outside your normal routine and find something special that you can do for someone that is outside the norm for you. Something that will make them feel amazing and will make YOU feel amazing.
Because if we all do that then we make the world a better place.
This week I had the opportunity to decorate a Christmas tree for the local children’s hospital. This is a cause that is near and dear to my heart because my own little 3 year old was in the hospital just a few months ago with meningitis.
Christmas Tree Market sent me a beautiful tree and asked me to find a local organization that would enjoy it.
I got to pick out all of the decorations and decorate it however I wanted. I went for something whimsical and fun that the kids would enjoy:
We put it in a sitting area in the hospital near a big window.
And decorated it in red and green (and sparkly of course!):
I loved these cute whimsical decorations:
I am hoping this brings just a touch of cheer to the patients and families in the hospital at this time of year. Because I know just how important that is.
A big thank you to Christmas Tree Market for letting me have this opportunity! It was really neat! And the tree really is a good quality, gorgeous tree!
Will you take my challenge? Let’s spread the love and pay it forward! And truly enjoy the Christmas season!
