Last week I ran into a community cafe to share a pot of tea and scones with a business associate. I stopped at a Christmas tree in the entryway and noticed the tags that listed gifts to be donated. An 8-year-old girl wanted a doll, a 10-year-old boy wanted some paints, a senior male wanted size 10 slippers. Three tags brought tears to my eyes: senior female…any gift. Somewhere near me lived some older women who only wanted a gift for Christmas, and it didn’t matter what it was. I returned later with three gifts, left them under the tree and whispered a blessing to the women. For my New Year’s Resolution, I’ve decided that I will think about these women throughout the year and try to be kinder, more loving, and less hectic. And I wish I could share some tea and scones with them.
