JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 339 christmas kindness

5 Dec

Today I continue the month of Christmas Kindness!

My dear Mama Sling loved Christmas. She loved wrapping the presents with gigantic bows that she made from her very hands. Mama Sling spent hours making those bows, and they were beautiful too.

Every Christmas we had to assemble the entire tree scene and set up with one goal — “Don’t crush the bows!”

Our Christmas Tree was a gigantic game of Tetris. The boxes had to be placed “just right” in order to keep all the bows fluffy and shiny and new. Mama Sling would sit back in her chair and command us to move and shuffle boxes under the tree until they found the perfect spot that would showcase all their glory.

Mama Sling’s bows were just one of the many, many, many things she did exceptionally well. Another talent of hers was the art of the HUG.

Mama Sling could hug a stranger and make them feel like family. Nobody made it past our front without a hug.

And so it is, in this month of Christmas Kindness, that I am sharing hugs. The Mama Sling kind. The kind that make you feel all warm inside and loved and accepted. Kind of like being wrapped in a beautiful bow.

Hug someone.
It’s Christmas Kindness.

More tomorrow…
