With Halloween past, the crazy rush to get to Christmas has already begun. Hey wait...isn't there another holiday in there??? Oh yeah, THANKSGIVING! I know the Christmas season is wonderfully fun, but I'm just the kind of gal that likes to enjoy my holidays in order (not taking a pause from the Christmas celebrating to have Thanksgiving dinner).
While I do eat my turkey before I put up my tree, I will admit I like to get a head start on my shopping. Usually I'm super excited about hitting the mall, some small shoppes, and online stores to find just the perfect gift. But this year something feels different. For one, I am not working this year so umm...the budget is definitely different.
I absentmindedly remember saying a little prayer (more to myself than actually to God) that I wish I could find a gift that would be great for everyone so I wouldn't have to spend so much time shopping and could enjoy the holiday season doing the things I love with the people I love. Oh...but God was listening, even to my mutterings! That's when I saw bloggers start posting about Water For Christmas. I read their posts, researched the cause, and then thanked God for showing me the perfect gift. I am doing donations for my friends and family and hopefully learning about this cause will prompt them to continue the giving. Water for Christmas beats a knick-knack, a sweater or gift card any day!
So if you're looking for the perfect gift, here it is!
