Sorry, I don't have the magic button to make December have twice as many days as any other month. I know - what good am I? hehe - well, maybe I do have a couple of ideas for you though... (You knew that I would!)
First, make the decision to reclaim the Spirit of Christmas. You can do it! Here are some ideas for you - pick one (or more) and do it!
#1. Stop and have some fun. Here's a little diversion. You know how you look for shapes in the clouds? Well, here's a fun picture I took of the ice. What do you see?
#2. There is nothing like giving a gift to lift your spirits. Check out Project Angel Tree or give a gift to honor a friend or loved one at World Vision. You will be twice blessed when you do that.
#3. Have a feast - at a shelter. Help out at a food bank. Donate an hour or two where people help people and it will lift your spirits and give you a new outlook on life.
#4. Share your smile with someone else and see how fast it will spread around a room full of strangers. Try it in a crowded store. It really works and it weaves a little joy into the lives of others.
#5. There is nothing quite like singing a song to lift your spirits. So, share a song with some folks in a nursing home. Can't sing? Then just go visit! You will be amazed how their smiles will raise your spirits.
Yes, you can make the decision to reclaim the Spirit of Christmas. You can do it! And, look back and see all the joy that you spread by doing a few simple things - then remember that you can do them all year long.
Hey, do you have some other ideas of how to share the Spirit of Christmas with others? Share those ideas with us!
PS The winner of the Blog to Blog Spirit of Christmas Treasure Hunt will be posted on Monday, December 14th ~ provided that the rain does not wash away my internet =p *again*
