I was working on a post yesterday about Christmas and Advent and how I'm never really ready and how that's ok in the end. Shockingly, I didn't finish writing it yet.
Yes, that last sentence was drenched with a healthy dose of self-deprecating sarcasm. ;-)
I may get back to my keyboard and get it done; until I do, I did want to share a couple of YouTubes worth watching, especially if the insanity of the season is making you feel more like Grinch and less like George Bailey at the end of It's a Wonderful Life*.
"Change for a Dollar" popped up in my Google Reader last week courtesy of both Patrick Madrid and Fallible Blogma. Kleenex Warning - it made me cry a little bit (yes, it does happen on rare occasion!).
It never ceases to amaze me to consider how the little things we do, the little spur-of-the-moment acts of kindness and goodness that we make toward others in the midst of our busy days, can have the biggest effect and impact on their lives. I think I'll be dropping some pennies around town...
Thanks to Fr Schninppel for sharing this version of A Christmas Story. It's adorable, touching, and OMGOlly!! The NZ accents of the little kids?! TOO cute.
Merry Christmas all!
*My fave Christmas movie of all time. And no matter what, it is a pretty wonderful life, ya know. ;-)
