This holiday season, there are lots of Holiday Giving Trees around -- at Natalie's school, at Philip & James' school, at the gym, in church. Some of the things that the kids are asking for cost a LOT of money -- more than I am spending on my own kids. I did give each of the kids a new toy to donate to Toys For Tots. But it is also nice to be able to give some of my time instead of money to a charitable organization. Tonight I did just that --helping cut scarves for Project Warm Hug's Holiday Scarf-a-Thon. I've been reading about this organization for a while on my mothers' club email list, and I just decided it was time to start helping. Took only 2 hours and gave me something to feel good about tonight.
