I'm part of a local mother's group called MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers), which is tons of fun, and I've gotten to be good friends with a lot of really great women. Tonight a fantastic group of those lady friends came over to our townhouse to wrap shoe boxes for Operation Christmas Child. We were planning on doing one shoe box, but had so many toys that we ended up doing two instead! The original plan included appetizers and watching a Christmas movie, but we had so much fun just hanging out and chatting, that we never watched the film. I've decided (yet again) that I'm so glad there are now ladies in my life!
If you haven't done a box yet this year, I highly recommend you take the time. It doesn't cost much and doesn't take much time, but is a HUGE blessing to a child somewhere who might not get anything for Christmas, or doesn't have many (or any) toys. National collection week is going on right now - November 17-24, so you'll need to hurry!
