This year I could not buy things like I would have in the past so I gave time-
I helped to serve food at the annual Christmas party at the senior center in my small town, where I do volunteer work for Meals on Wheels.
Delivered poinsettia plants to senior citizens that were donated by our local Lion's club. It was a small gift, but people seemed very happy to have
something for Christmas.
Took a group of homeless people for a free holiday breakfast at a restaurant called Baja Fresh this morning. They also got fruit and meals to go. It
was fun and one of the guys was named Dean Martin, just thought that was funny. I also got to enjoy the free breakfast, and it was a nice meal.
I usually do not do this much, but I was not able to be with friends or family, so I wanted to keep busy, and have some fun too! It is a nice end to
a year that was not exactly great, and I hope next year will be better.
I am grateful that my daughter called at the end of the day to wish me a Merry Christmas, as she has not really been keeping in touch, great girl,
long story. It was so nice to hear her voice, even if I could not see her this year for the holidays.
