>A Different Kind of Gift

>Four times in two days. That’s my Target tally. Seriously. You shouldn’t find yourself at Target for a fourth time in just two days anytime of the year, but most definitely not the week of Christmas. So even though I am certain to wake up realizing I forgot to get that one last thing, I am done. Instead I am trying something new this year. Giving a gift to someone that is really for someone else.

Instead of scurrying around a multi-level mall with a toddler and 7 month old in tow, feeling frantic and surrounded by frantic others who could use an extra swig from the cup of Christmas cheer, I am lounging on the couch. Regaining my clarity, sanity, and yuletide spirit by listening to the ever-so-Christmassy Coldplay and “shopping” online. But this isn’t your typical Cyber Monday shopping. This is for gifts that give life and hope for others. Because really, there’s nothing more Christmassy than Life and Hope!

Watch out. You just may get a goat from us this year!
