Christmas is for my Stampede Sisters and I, a giving time - that`s why this month it was so wonderful to be able to volunteer for Operation Christmas Child at the Samaritan`s purse headquarters for a day to help to pack 4, 500 shoe boxes. Packed with candy, toys, pencil, coloring books, tooth brush, soap and clothes, those shoe boxes will be delivered all over the world to less fortunate children. While I was volunteering, I kept thinking about all the smiles on the kids faces when they receive and open their box. It warmed my heart to know that these gifts will bring joy and hope in all these children`s life.
As well, last week we decided to give our time to an other organisation; Saint Michael`s Food Hamper Day. We helped the volunteers pack food hamper that will go to families in need. This year, some of the food hamper will be also delivered to a women’s shelter.These families will also received Christmas gifts for their children. It`s was so great to see all these volunteers come together to help to make the Christmas Holidays better for these families.
To me Christmas always been about spending time with my family, it wouldn`t feel like Christmas without my parents and my brother. And this year I am fortunate enough to fly to Quebec and spend time with them. I am so excited to spend a week with the people I love and that`s what I wanted the most for Christmas. Thank you Santa ! ;)
I wish a Merry Christmas and an Happy New Year to all of you !!!
