It’s the Small Things…

DSC_0290

We hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas filled with family, friends, laughter, and love. During the holidays sometimes we get so focused on material things like gifts, decorations, and elaborate holiday feasts that we forget that it’s the small acts of generosity that matter. This came to mind when my uncle told me about a letter he received. Every year he goes all out (and I really mean ALL OUT)  in decorating his house, and has created a game for passer-bys. He places tons of Santas all over his house ( this year it was 128)  and the person who guesses the correct number wins a prize. Well, last year a little boy won movie tickets, and his mom wrote a letter saying how she had lost her job and could not afford to take him to the movies. It was a very rough time for their family, and when he won the tickets, he was overjoyed and it totally made his Christmas! His mom thanked my uncle for making their Christmas one to remember, and for keeping the true meaning of the holiday alive. This story made me realize that it doesn’t matter how much money you spend on a gift, just that you thought of someone else. So I encourage you to take advantage of these moments where you can make a small act of kindness, because you never know how it could change a person’s life.
