LOVE this idea!! Goody Bags for the homeless!

Each year kids must choose ten old toys to put in their Santa bags. These must be toys in decent shape that other kids would actually want. We leave the bags under our tree on Christmas Eve. Santa takes the old toys back to the North Pole to fix them up and give to other kids. Great way to declutter, recycle old toys, and teach the kids about giving.

You have never really lived until you have done something for someone who can never repay you! These wonderful words touch my heart in a special way and inspire me to give and serve more. Upon reading the obituary in our local newspaper of a very dear friend, I discovered one of the most generous gifts I have ever received, one of which could never be repaid. I was listed as a special survivor to a very dear friend of mine. We were very close and an unlikely pair. He was an elderly widower and I, a young wife and mother of two. He was African-American and I, a Caucasian. He was a Democrat, and I, a Republican. We became friends when he was a patient of my husband's. He was a great blessing to me and I hope I was to him. We talked daily on the phone where I learned a lot about life and our Creator. I thought I knew about racism, but was sadly mistaken. I cooked for him every chance I could. While he would not come to dinner at our house, he did come over one day just to hear me play the piano. (Either my husband or I delivered the food to him.) I still miss him so much! He was a godly man who was very bright and witty. He taught me how to live and sadly, how to die. And he taught me what it truly means to be unselfish...by giving me a gift I can never repay. :)
