Give The Gift of Service

This week's theme of giving gifts from the heart instead of just from the wallet...

The following are some great websites I've stumbled upon with some great ideas for Christmas gift giving.

Helping the Needy for Christmas

Making gifts for needy leaves stitchers with a warm feeling..."Hugs and Stitches"


Other service gift giving ideas may be...

...visit a senior center/retirement home and read or play games with those living there.

...volunteer at a home for the physically handicapped to read and/or play games.

...take cookies and a homemade card to one of your neighbors that you may have never met, or who you rarely interact with.

Don't forget Hanukkah. You may use these same ideas for other celebrations as well.

I hope that these ideas add to your enjoyment of the holiday season.

Have a fabulous day!


Blogging Joke of the Day

We've all been passed by motorists on the road going much faster than we were.

But you can imagine my shock at recently being passed by a speeding lady going down the middle of the road's dotted line at a truly breakneck speed (at least 100 mph, on only a two lane road)!

The danger she proposed was high, so you can imagine my relief when I passed her later on down the road parked in front of a car with whirling lights.

Their conversation went something like this...

"License and Registration please," the officer asked.

"It's okay, Officer, I have a special license that allows me to do this," said the lady, smiling.

"Yeah, right!" he replied, "I've never heard of such a license."

The lady reached into her purse and handed him her license.

"Just as I suspected," the officer said, "this is an ordinary license, and I see nothing here that would allow you special consideration."

But the lady, still smiling, pointed to the bottom of the license.

"See? It says so right here: 'Tear Along The Dotted Line.'"
