This Christmas, I was looking for opportunities to end the year on a high note by giving and bringing a smile to someone. An opportunity presented when a lady posted on community Facebook page about a giving initiative for needy families. I volunteered and was assigned two families who needed jackets, shoes, gloves, sweatpants, and warm clothes for winter. My kids are grown up, so shopping for small ones gave me a lot of joy. I also chose to drop off the gifts myself and had a chance to meet the families. I got hugs in return. It was a drop in the ocean, but I was delighted and felt privileged to make a difference to these families.
It may be a drop in the ocean, but it makes a difference to both the one who gives and one who receives.
