As for our gifts to our own children, we already have them lying beside the little tree. I cannot tell you now what we have for them because my children will be reading this post and it's no longer a surprise. I'm very sure they will love them. But it seems like they will be more excited to deliver more gifts than opening their own.
Tomorrow, dh and I are shopping for baskets of goodies for 2 families that have become dear to us. Also, there is a plan to hold a Christmas party in our community center. I'm not yet certain how and when it gonna be. But surely will do it.
I am as excited as my kids to see others feel loved on Christmas day.
The joy of brightening other lives, bearing each others' burdens,
easing other's loads and supplanting empty hearts and lives with generous gifts
becomes for us the magic of Christmas.
