Time. It's such a precious thing. It's something we count so greedily, whether wishing it away or wishing it would stop. What if we gave more of it, instead of unwrapping things under the tree? Maybe this world would be a different place.
We spent an hour having coffee with our friends?
We spent time as a family volunteering before the holidays or even during Winter Break?
We wrote a note to a teacher, a mentor, a grandparent, thanking them for their contributions in our lives?
We did a team volunteer project at work as part of our Christmas celebration?
We made Christmas cookies or baked treats and shared them with our pastor, our coaches, our small group, the homeless?
We spent an hour in the classroom instead of collecting for a teacher gift?
We ate lunch at school with our kids -- like they so often ask us to do?
We asked the volunteers for groups our kids participate in: What do you need help with? And follow through.
Many hands make light work. - African proverb
