Yesterday, we had the youth decorate stockings (gift bags, actually), then fill them with gloves, hats, scarves, toys and treats. We made adult-specific and child-specific bags. We'll deliver them to a shelter, right before the holiday. It was fun to watch the children decorate the bags--especially watching the older ones helping the younger. Best of all was the outpouring of generosity--the table full of socks, the table full of hats, the two tables of toys...I was really touched to see the generous spirit of the Countryside folks. And I was touched to be a part of teaching that generosity to the next generation. I love my job!
