I want to thank all the people who have supported me by purchasing my books. This Christmas season we were able to use some of the proceeds to sponsor a child in need.
The card he filled out and hung on the tree said he was 10 years old, in need of school uniforms and shoes (I'll bet his mom prompted that entry), and he wanted a basketball and a stocking.
What? He only asked for a basketball and a stocking?!!! No video games? No high dollar Lego sets? No bike? Wow! This kid really touched my heart.
I had a blast shopping for him. He got his school uniform pieces, and basketball shoes. Of course, the basketball he requested. But, I really had fun filling his stocking! I put everything I could think of in it, Legos, games, candy, knowing he would be so surprised when he opened it because it was so much more than he asked for!
The greatest Christmas gift is when you're able to spoil someone who is so deserving.
