Yesterday I finally managed to get all of my Christmas presents wrapped except for one present for my daughter which I ordered online. I’ve been waiting
patiently…. okay make that not so patiently for it to be delivered. I received and email yesterday telling me it will be here by December 24, so Ugh and thank you Target for leaving me on pins and needles wondering if her gift will get here by Christmas.
I was thinking today about how I spend so much time searching for just the right gift for each person on my list. This gift is something I know she really wants and needs and also one I am excited to give her (I can’t say what it is here just in case she is reading my blog). I will be really disappointed if it doesn’t get here on time.
Finding the right gift for my kids seems a lot harder now that they are adults but shopping for my grand kids is easy. When I shop for them the gifts practically jump off the shelf into my cart and I have to stop myself from buying them too much.
Today I was looking once again through the Compassion Christmas catalog and noticed they have some pretty unique gifts in it. They are gifts that are not your normal type of Christmas present. While I am spoiling my grand kids with toys there are kids in the world who are asking for things like chickens, goats, and pigs for Christmas. For a family in poverty, gifts like these are truly needed and wanted, and they can provide food or be a way to generate income. A goat can provide milk for a family, pigs reproduce very fast and can be sold or used as food. A chicken can provide eggs to be eaten or sold in the market for income or even hatched into more chickens.
Oh and guess what?… When you purchase a gift from Compassion’s catalog if you would like, you can purchase the gift in honor of a friend or family member and they will receive a card via email or if you would like you can print it and to give it to them as a gift telling them you have purchased a gift in their honor. How cool is that?!
So with that said…. today’s 12 Days of Giving Christmas Away gift is ….
drum roll please….
the gift of pigs, chickens and goats!
How cool will it be when your friend or family member opens their gift this year to find out that you have purchased a pig, chicken or goat in honor of them and then to know that you have helped a family in poverty to be more self-sufficient, have more income, and have healthier children!
Who would have ever thought a gift of a pig, chicken or goat could be the perfect gift?

Well thats it for today, hope to see you back here tomorrow. Have a wonderful day!
