I believe that people have good intentions. I believe that people do want to help and to be needed as well. However, I also believe that one of the most discouraging thoughts preventing us from doing great things is the idea that our simple gesture won't matter. And so we often give in before we begin. Well, what if I told you that every little gesture did matter. I truly believe it does. Even little gestures change lives and hearts - particularly our own.
In fact, here's one small gesture you can make that will take less than 5 minutes and cost the price of a stamp. Katy from No Big Dill posted HERE yesterday about a sweet young boy who has cystic fibrosis. He isn't expected to live much longer, but his wish or dream is to beat the world record for the most Christmas cards received. Wouldn't it be fun to make his day? I know it's really close to Christmas, but I bet the cards count even if they're a little late. Here's his address:
HC 62 Box 1249
Salyersville, KY 41465
It'd be a great activity to let your kids participate in. Just get out some paper and markers.
And in case you're thinking it really won't matter, do you remember that little girl scout group I posted about HERE who was gathering gloves for the homeless? I thought it'd be fun to share a report with you.
Here's part of an email I received from Kayla's mom:
