Chrysti is doing the 29 days of giving, and I love the whole idea! I know how much a simple gift can matter: case in point, the wonderful blog candy that I won on Seth's blog back in September, that arrived shortly after Hurricane Ike did so much damage here. It was the only thing that came in the mail that day (we were lucky to even get any mail), the mailman brought it to the house instead of leaving it in the box (they were only delivering packages), and I spent a good hour sitting at the kitchen table going through everything piece by piece, relishing the time spent away from yard cleanup and worrying about the roof damage.
So who knows, maybe I'll get my butt in gear over the holidays and follow Chrysti's lead. . .
