1. For the second year in a row, my friend/colleague Julia organized a group of us to participate in the adopt-a-family program at her church. Because so many people wanted to be involved, two families will have lots of presents under the tree — well beyond what was on their official lists. It’s a great feeling to know I work with such generous people.
2. I have been eating gingersnaps like it’s my job, and pretending that the holiday season somehow absolves them of their calories.
3. Doing some Christmas shopping today, I was so happy to see two great locak shops, Labyrinth Games and Hill’s Kitchen, doing a booming pre-holiday business. I love being able to support neighbor-owned businesses, and it’s terrific to see them doing so well.
What’s been beautiful in your life this week?
