JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 353 :: christmas kindness

21 Dec
{wrap it up}

Today I continue the month of Christmas Kindness!

We wrapped Christmas gifts tonight. As I was folding and cutting and taping paper I was also showing off a bit. I am a bit of a paper wrapper snob.

It goes way back to my junior high days when my youth group would wrap Christmas gifts in the local mall as a fundraiser. We wrapped the presents so everyone could take home perfectly wrapped gifts. They paid us money – and it raised funds for our initiatives. Win. Win.

I learned all the tricks of the trade in that booth. How to size up paper to match a box. How to fix a box when you ran out of paper. How to crease the corners and tie a bow to add that extra pizzazz.

So tonight, while wrapping gifts for our loved ones, I realized how KIND it is to fold paper for someone else. Really, it’s just as beautiful to wrap something up in a surprise box with all the love and perfectly creased corners, as it is to open up a gift from someone else.

‘Tis the season!
May your season be wrapped in kindness too.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie
