As we celebrate Epiphany today and the end of the 12 Days of Christmas, I am re-reading the Matthew West book, 101 Simple & Thoughtful Ways to Give This Christmas Away in preparation for the end of our giveaway. Looking back through it makes me smile, there are so many wonderful ideas that I want to implement in my family throughout the year.
While initially reading the book, I shared some of the suggestions with my children as examples of good works. My 6 year old son has taken #89 truly to heart. Every time I went into a parking lot during the Christmas shopping season, he would remind me - "Mom, remember to park in the back!" Now, even when he is at school, I smile as I pull into a parking lot and hear his little voice in my head telling me to leave the close parking spots open for people who need them. Speaking of smiles, that's #19!
In celebration of #72 - Give this book away - Shelly and I will be sending a copy of this book to a random person who comments on our original post about this Matthew West book or here by the end of today.
I know this book will have a positive impact on you and your family like it has with mine.
