“A little smile, a word of cheer, A bit of love from someone near, A little gift from one held dear, Best wishes for the coming year… These make a Merry Christmas!”
— John Greenleaf Whittier
Natalie, a fine goose of a writer over at Mother Goose Smiles, asked me for help with a project.
Due to military commitments, her sons have to spend Christmas away from home for the first time. So she’s organizing a Christmas-card-a-thon for them. She’s asking her friends and blog friends to send her boys a Christmas card for the holiday season. It’s a way to let them know their sacrifice for country is appreciated.
It’s a nifty idea. Is there someone in your life who is struggling this holiday season? Is there someone who might appreciate a batch of Christmas cards, even from strangers?
If so, ask a few of your friends, and their friends, to mail an extra card this year to that person in your life who needs a little extra cheer.
I’m sure Mother Goose would approve.
Yesterday’s gift of time … Wrote a Christmas card for a goose.
** Note — To put my money where my mouth is … If you’d like me to send a Christmas card to someone in your life that needs a little support, please send me an email with their name, address, & relationship to you. I’ll be happy to help.
Yes! Mother Goose DOES approve! Eric, thank you thank you thank you for helping us make this faraway Christmas a very special one for my sailor sons. It’s folks like you (and your readers!) who go the extra mile and make this world a beautiful place. All the lights and wrappings and sugar cookies don’t compare with taking the time to be kind to souls — that’s Christmas in a eggshell… 😀
