Well, until the politicians do it for the upcoming elections. But this is not about that.
With all the parties happening, it’s so easy to get lost in all the merriment and chaos of looking for gifts for our dear ones and ultimately forget that Christmas is more than that. Cliché as it may be, Christmas is that time of the year when everyone is a little kinder; maybe because we have a little bit more than usual.
Part of our team party, each of us donated a pack containing mineral water, easy-open canned goods, biscuits and toiletries for the victims of typhoon Pablo. We dropped off four boxes at the Red Cross, Rizal Chapter. Check this link for other relief operation in the metro.
And I’m getting this out of the way. I’m no Miss Goodie Two Shoes; I can be a wicked witch when I want to be; a fairly nice person when I’m in the mood but can be downright mean and that includes a vicious tongue (ummm, well….. 😉 ) when provoked. That said, I enjoy sharing the little blessings I have every year with the kids in our neighborhood, our favorite magtataho, Mang Gary and the guys from the Waste Management. 🙂
It’s just candies mostly for the kids and canned good stuff and candies for Mang Gary and the WM guys. I like seeing their smiles when they get the little gifts we have for them. Even for the kids singing carols, we don’t give them money, instead we tell them to come back on Christmas morning because we’ll give something for each of them.
And for this year, I hope the kids and the carolers who’ve been knocking on our gate will like the little loot we have for them.
I love this video that went viral recently. In a nutshell, we are all connected by a strange force and if you give love, you get love. It all comes full circle. In time.
