Next thing you know, I'd set aside some new teddy bears, children's books, and various other items to donate there. I filled up my trunk and the middle of my car last week and headed off with my friend to downtown L.A.. It's always a difficult place to visit because there are so many people in need, but I was glad to be able to drop off some things that I hope will bring joy this holiday season.
This little Santa I'm keeping though. My grandmother would hand make ornaments each year to give to us. Although one of my goals is to have less stuff, the ornaments she made for us with so much love are a collection which I think will always have a place in my home.
