K and I opened a door like usual on the Klove's advent calendar little did we know it would change the way we are currently looking at Christmas.
Honestly if we gave away EVERY SINGLE present under our tree, it would not effect us at all. We are fine without the things that are nicely wrapped under the tree. We are not in NEED of anything. Those things are all indulgences, stuff we want. OK with the exception on the panties I bought for K...lol
However, there are kids out there that are over joyed just to receive a tiny stuffed animal or a slinky or a book. This video really put things into perspective for us.
We were thinking about adopting an angel from the Angel Tree, but now we are definitely going too. This video shows clips from Operation Christmas Child. This is the first year in over 10 years that we aren't putting at least 2 shoe boxes together. Our old church where we used to live did this every year. I think I will go online and find a drop point, I hope it's not too late.
What a powerful message. Even a 9 year old was willing to give up her gifts! She looked at me and said "we really do have to many things under the tree" WOW!
