I don’t know what you did on Christmas Day… Me? I decided to go to the movies (saw “The King’s Speech” ~ AMAZING!!! ~ anyway, that’s not what this post is about) then to dinner with friends (and THAT’S what this is all about!).
I met an incredible 80 year old lady at the cinema and invited her for a Christmas drink afterward, as she had no where else to go other than home alone.
I was due for pre-dinner drinks and then Christmas dinner at the home of two beautiful friends, Marnie and Gloria. When I sent a text letting them know why I’d be a little late, they invited this wonderful woman to have Christmas dinner with their family.
So, that’s what we did ~ and it was an incredibly special night.
I cannot begin to tell you how blessed I felt for having ‘adopted’ this articulate, interesting and talented senior lady ~ and for being invited to be part of an extended family for Christmas.
If you want to know how to ‘receive’?
The answer is ‘give’!
Wishing everyone ~ and especially the beautiful Gambit family ~ a very happy, healthy and prosperous 2011!
Until next time…
