Last week, in light of the frenzied Christmas shopping season, I challenged us to confess our greatest desires – the things we wanted most and hoped Santa would bring us. What I assumed would be a day filled with greed, however, soon turned into something else. There was talk of world peace, saving the environment, even the hope of making a new friend... and suddenly, I realized that the authors and characters that gather here can be a pretty selfless lot.
Like the Grinch Who Stole Christmas, I felt as though my heart grew three sizes in one fell swoop.
So, this week, I thought we could emote a much more positive aspect of the holiday season – not greed, but charity – not taking, but giving.
Tell me, everyone – what would you like to give this season, and to whom? Even if it’s just a handful of wild berries to a friend, it’s still the thought that matters, right?
It is the season of charity, after all.
