This weekend I was trying, but failing, to get into the Christmas spirit, and I thought that perhaps all hope was lost for the season. But yesterday afternoon I happened to get emails, texts, chats and calls about everything that’s coming together for our Christmas Love Drop, from all the folks who are up in Milwaukee helping us out.
As I read through all the reports, I saw that person after person had given up some of their time, money or gifts to instead pay it forward to the family we’re helping this month. We never know exactly how the Drops will go each month until a few days before, and this time it’s all coming together beautifully.
And in that moment, without even looking for it, I found my Christmas spirit and was truly joyful. Thank you, Love Drop team, for reminding me that love actually is all around us.
