Tis’ the season

It’s the seasons and it’s been awhile since I’ve written. I won’t make excuses I’ll just call it life. What I’m going to write about isn’t about me today it’s about giving, some may call it the spirit of Christmas others say the spirit of giving. Me I call it right, just the right thing to do.

Sit and think how stressed were you on what gift to give to who. Add on top of that, time to balance your job, your family and with this economy your bank balance. Sit and think how much did you give this year compared to years past? Don’t get me wrong I’m in the same boat as everyone else, more so in some ways. This isn’t a post to make anyone feel like they’ve done less. We all need to survive.

This is a post to put a light out in all of the darkness that has been our lives, with the economy, wars, health….. Insert reasons here.

The light, or should I say lights, Deedee and Steve. I’ve talked about them before about what they do for Christmas each and every year. In short they don’t have kids of their own so each year they donate gifts to Toys for Tots. This year though was a little different.

This year Deedee and Steve Felt that with the economy as low as it has been that there would be more kids without so this year when they shopped they doubled what they usually do. They went and shopped at toy stores and made a grand day of getting toys for kids that without them would never have something under the tree.

People say I’m a role model and inspiration. I’m not I’m just an angry guy trying to deal with the crap ass cards I’ve been dealt . If you want to be inspired look at this couples example.

Proud to call them my friends.
