The Spirit of Christmas & Thanksgiving Thursday

"The greatest of all gifts is to give completely of yourself." ~Mama Hen
"Mommy, I am ready to donate my hair. I love my hair so much, but the children need it more than I do and I know mine will grow back." This is what Little Chick said to me this morning. We have been talking for weeks about the true spirit of Christmas and to give of ourselves. She has not cut her hair yet since it grew in other then a trim. She has not even been in a salon, because my friend Geri always trims a half inch or so. Little Chick really was not sure about the idea when I first brought it up to her. She loves her long beautiful hair. I told her that it was completely up to her, but that it would be the greatest gift she could give to another child. After weeks of thinking about it she decided that she would like to donate her hair to Locks of Love. She had a great time at the salon! When she was done she said, "Mommy my hair will grow back quickly and next Christmas I would like to donate it again to the children who need it." I am so proud of my beautiful Little Chick! She has such a giving heart.
Thanksgiving Thursday: 1.) Little Chick and my family 2.) Little Chick's giving heart and the lessons she teaches me every day with her complete kindness 3.) The true Christmas spirit 4.) All of our adorable animals 5.) Giving and making others smile.
