Last night my husband and I took our 3 boys to see the Trans-Siberian Orchestra Christmas concert here in Colorado Springs. I’ve always wanted to see it, but it never worked out in the past, so, we jumped on the chance to go this year. It was absolutely wonderful. So many talented musicians, and the choreographers kept the show unbelievably alive and entertaining. Of course, my ears were still ringing hours later….
But, as many of you know, there is a Christmas Story/Poem that is part of the show, and I was realizing how apropos some of the stanzas were for this month’s 30 Days, 30 Gifts, 30 Winners. I know that we have readers of all faiths, but I think that all will understand what this is all about. I did my best to text them to myself so I could post it here. I think they are in order….
If you want to arrange it
This world you can change it
If we could somehow make this
Christmas thing last
By helping a neighbor
Or even a stranger
And to know who needs help
You need only just ask
It’s every gift that someone gives
Expecting nothing back
It’s every kindness that we do
Each simple little act
And so it’s good that we remember
Just as soon as we’ve discovered
That the things we do in life
Will always end up touching others
I sure hope I didn’t slaughter it! Anyway, again I am so happy with all of the blog entries we are getting. Be sure to keep them coming as each deed or act you post to us will be entered into our daily drawing, as well as our Grand Prize drawing.
Our Day 5 Winner is…
