I love gift giving. I love the spirit of the holiday season, and for the most part everyone seems so nice and good spirits (unless you’re in walmart during rush hour). 🙂
Do you give gifts during this season or are you a scrooge?
I’m sure you’re reading this and thinking: gifting? I don’t have the funds for that and to spend on those closest to me.
Well I’m here to tell you that the ones you don’t know sometime need blessing way more than the ones you do know. Often times the people you know, you tend to also know their business like what they need or don’t need. The people you don’t know often times need financial and spiritual blessings. Think about a time when you had alot but you didn’t have the desires of your heart. Think about that for a moment.
A little happy goes a long way! What do I mean by that? Recently I was a little down in my spirit, not because I don’t have this or I don’t have that, merely because during the season I get to thinking of everyone and people that simply don’t have anything at all. I especially think of the children. During my sitting and rocking Friday morning, there was a knock on the door. I’m instantly thinking who could that be. It was the UPS delivery guy. If you’re like me you know when you order something and when you don’t. I was thinking he had the wrong address, or maybe my husband ordered something. Low and behold there was the cutest pink and black box addressed to me (see pic below). Inside were cupcakes from one of my clients. This gift was totally unexpected because I usually get a card or a thank you here and there. I told you this story because that delivery brightened up my day. I was like wow people really do care and they notice.
Before you get your gift wrapping tape in a wad let me be clear. You don’t have to send gourmet cupcakes or even anything of a monetary value. Have you ever tried sending e-cards? There’s a huge amount of FREE e-cards online that only take a few minutes to send out. Wouldn’t it be awesome for your clients, church members, or even neighbors to receive a little happy like that from you. Your words of holiday spirit, cheer, and encouragement would brighten up their day.
If you really want to get crafty and have the resources try making cards or a little happy for someone special this holiday season. Anything baked is always tasty and from the heart.
Get your kids involved so that they can share in the gift of giving.
If you don’t have the time for this, this is an inexpensive task that you can contact a Virtual Assistant for.
What little happy do you plan to use in order to make a heart smile this holiday season?
I’d love to hear from you.
