So Today …
We packed up the car
With all the good stuff we don’t use…
Found out the address
Of the Local
“WOMEN’S DOMESTIC VIOLENCE REFUGE”
Drove to their SECRET House
Dropped off a big load
Hubby and I felt really good
To see we could perhaps help
Unfortunate, distressed and
Anxious … needy souls!
A young Girl was HIDDEN behind giant bolted gates …
Felt so sorry that she had to flee her home
Due to a
“Bad man’s” evil ANGER and violent, abusive mistakes!
So hoping that all those Families
Will have a HAPPY Christmas to remember
And that they know
That the local Community will send more HOPE
To their caring Centre!
We feel better now that we have done a little bit
And from the TRUE SPIRIT of Christmas GIVING
We were able to give help and share some assorted gifts!
“PAYING IT FORWARD” is the way I like the best
Doesn’t cost a bank roll…
“Kindness and sharing”
“COSTS NOTHING” more or less.
“MONEY ” and control
Is the issue for many whom I have “known”
Working to provide their family
With so much stuff
Because of advertising media and
Peer pressure “sown” …
We’ll be looking forward to enjoying our
Focussing on the LOVE
“Spending” precious, special moments
And sharing our grandchildren’s JOY
And that TO ME
Is the reason
For us at this Festive Time!
To celebrate and honour our Loved one’s
Sharing a home cooked family meal
Maybe a glass or two
Of Red or White Wine …
Forgetting about the buying
And FRENZIED SHOPPING GALORE
We’ve been staying away from the RETAIL malls
And biding our time …
We’re not visiting any stores!
So today …
This started our real “Christmas”
And just how we want it “to be”
Remembering the true significance of the Nativity.
Now we feel prepared
For the Christmas Season…
Sharing the “Spirit of Giving”
And the reason for the “MEANING” …
It’s very well known that at this time of year
So many families are STRESSED and worried
To provide so much Christmas stuff and Cheer!
Looking back on my Christmases of “old”
I REMEMBER …
Spending time with my LOVED ONES
