JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 341 :: christmas kindness

7 Dec
{give openly}

Today I continue the month of Christmas Kindness!

We just arrived home from a Christmas party. One with a gift exchange “swap with a twist…”. We all drew numbers and then one by one picked up our presents. The gift picking came with the option to take someone else’s gift.

When I lived in New England, this was called a “Yankee Swap.” I’m not sure what it is called here on the West Coast. But it always creates a lot of laughter and some serious swapping strategies.

Tonight, the game ended with a promised “twist” — which was after all the swapping had subsided we passed our gifts one person to the right.

I ended up with a sweet little set of LED candles. But it got me thinking about kindness. About working really hard and gearing up over a mysterious box and then just handing it over to someone else.

There’s grace in sharing.
And it’s kind to share openly.
Even if it’s a box wrapped in paper that you pass to your right.

More tomorrow…
