Do you want to know how many days till Christmas? The answer is.........368 days until next Christmas!
I've been busy like all of you probably, getting ready for our Christmas, which will be a bit different this year for Les and me. No grandkids around on Christmas morning for the first time ever! We're going to have Christmas lunch all by ourselves, wow that will be weird. BUT there will be lovely grandchildren for dinner........ no, we're not going to cover them in gravy and eat them haha we'll be seeing them, and giving them some presents. WOO HOO!
If you're lucky to have lots of family around, do take a moment to think about the children who aren't so lucky. Or the children whose families struggle to buy presents. My cousin in Dunedin inspired me a few years ago to start doing a random act of Christmas kindness. At this time of year I get a few $5.00 notes, and when I go into a shop and buy something, I give $5.00 to the checkout person and say, "This a random act of Christmas kindness, and please take it off the bill for the person behind me." You try not to look behind you and leave. Sometimes I go and hide so I can watch their reaction. It's so much fun.
This morning I have written a new poem for the night before Christmas. I hope to put it on Youtube later today, so do go and take a look.
