No room at the inn

December 24, 2011

Our Christmas tree sits festively in a corner of the living room, decorated and lit.

Underneath are a handful of packages from distant friends and family, but tonight, we’ll be opening no gifts for one another this season.

Instead, we’ll sit by the fire and think about the people we’ve helped with the money we would have spent on one another this holiday. It’s our new tradition. And I love it.

I’m also happy to see that so many of my friends have done the same thing.

By helping others, we really are reaching out to people who could find “no room at the inn.” It’s the true spirit of the season and this year, it’s been infectious.

May you all have a joyous Christmas.
