Today the canvas came to make the story bags. I am so excited. Everyone who knows anything about me knows that I believe the gift of reading gives a child a life time of new opportunities and ideas. I consider unconditional love the first gift and reading the second. (Stay tuned and you may learn about the other gifts.)
Anyway I will cut and sew the canvas bags and in the bag put a book, an activity book and a small toy that has a connection to the book. We do different age groups and locations each year. This year we are doing them for daycares. It is a gift for the child for them to take home and share with their family.
Last year one mother called me and asked me why I bother and waste my money. I gave her the only answer I know. If it helps only one child it was all worth it. If it helps two it’s a miracle.
All in the Spirit of Christmas Every Day.
