I loved making and planning and wrapping the gifts, despite all the time and effort it took to get it all done. It was worth it when I saw the thankful expression on their faces. Even though the present wasn't a name brand or excellent quality, it still meant a lot to know that someone took all that time to do something, even very small, for you.
As I grew older I became more busy during the holiday season and didn't have as much time to give handmade gifts.
I want to start giving again, with more of a purpose, to give back to those in need, who might not get very much of anything this holiday season.
The Season of Giving!
