My Christmas List

I've been compiling my Christmas list. I don't want much, and I thought I'd post it here in case you are having problems thinking up the things you might also like to have. Sometimes looking at someone else's list can give you ideas for things you may like to add to your own.

1. For someone who is financially able to click on the Wounded Warrior button and send a backpack to a returning wounded warrior.

2. For people to drop change into the shiny red kettles as often as they can.

3. For someone to go through the pantry and cabinets for whatever cans and boxes that can be spared, and take them to the local food bank.

4. For someone to knock on a housebound neighbor's door and wish them a Merry Christmas.

5. For people to call the parent, or sibling, or child from whom they have been estranged by time or distance and just say "Hello, how are you."

6. For parents to spend an evening making Christmas or Hanukkah cards with their little ones, even if it is just a particularly "spectacular" one they can send to a grandparent or favorite auntie or uncle.

7. For all of you to pace yourselves and not let the season overwhelm you.

It's not much of a list, to be sure, but I sure would like to believe that I could get everything on my list. What's on your list that I might be able to do for you?

If people could do these simple things, our petty carping about blue vs red states, as well as our 'need' to get stuff, would not matter. And we'd be better off as a country and world because of it.
