December 05- The best gifts are not in boxes
Every time we love, every time we give, it’s Christmas. – Dale Evans
It’s not the cost of your gifts it’s the quality of your caring as you give. If your older relatives have never been able to come to a club and see you perform, give them a special concert in their homes. Record a cd of special Christmas music and write a personal note to a relative or friend who has been supportive of you and your career.
Give of your talent time and caring to patients at a nursing home or give a nod to Johnny Cash and donate a performance to a halfway house or prison. We all need love and love is expressed through our gift of music. It may not require shopping, standing in long lines, seeking a parking spot or spending money. It is a gift of heart and creative spirit.
Really think “outside the box”, the bows and the trappings of usual gifts this holiday season. Find a way to give in very non traditional and unique ways. Then make giving a year round, constant daily experience.
