For a couple of weeks now I was contemplating on treating myself with something for Christmas. I was looking at a new TV for my bedroom or at a new cell phone for myself, and going back and forth between the two.
But since I couldn’t make up my mind, I figured well I guess I don’t need either one of them. If I wanted one or the other bad enough I would have purchased that item by now. And I guess the guild factor came along too. Why buy something that I really don’t need. The phone I have is working just fine and there is really no need for an additional TV in the house, if I fall asleep at the beginning credits anyway.
So I decided, since there are so many families out there again, that can’t afford to buy gifts yet alone food I will take some of the money and buy a few items and donate them to a local charity that will make sure the items will go to a good family.
I guess what I am trying to say is, if you are out shopping, be it for groceries or for presents, maybe you can spare a few dollars to buy a toy or food or even a few clothing items and donate them. I may not have a lot myself, but I am sure that I have a whole lot more then some of the unfortunate families out there. And I will know that I can make someone Christmas a little more brighter and I will enjoy that feeling a whole lot more then buying myself some unneeded gadget.
