A few days before Christmas me and my family, with some friends, went to a not so fortunate place here in Davao City to give out something for the kids and parents. It’s really our tradition in our household that we started like 5 years ago for our kids. We buy some food and toys for the kids and some grocery items for the parents. It’s just an instant gift for them. We were not really prepared this year unlike the previous years. Before we really had it planned on what to give and where would we go. Since it got so busy last year we gave the money away for charity. This year we thought of giving it again, but then its again good for our kids to bring them again to the less fortunate kids and let our kids give them the food. They really like to give to those kids and parents. Those people are really nice and very respectful. We are so touched that at least we could give even just a small something to them. We know it’s not much, but at least just to make some kids happy this season.
Our kids also had some extra money from their allowance that they put into the piggy bank. They usually put it after school. This year the allowance for the kids the recipient is my mom. They wanted to give Lola something that she really needed. It’s my Mom’s birthday the day after Christmas. They wanted her to have it. Honestly it could be my Mom’s last Christmas this year. She’s really sick. My kids just want their Lola to be happy in any way they can. They love her. Chris really is close to my Mom.
We are just so thankful of the good blessings that we have this year. We hope again for a good and fruitful 2008 for all of us.
Happy New Year Everybody!
