We built a “tree” out of tinsel and decorated it with cards; each containing one Christmas wish from our adopted family. All that’s left to do now is wait – or, as is more my style, poke people daily to make sure they take cards off the tree and buy presents for those with far less than we have. I hope people will take part. I’m terrified that they won’t. I really, really want this to be fun and fruitful for our adopted family; to give them the kind of Hallmark Christmas I sneer at in accordance with the hipster creed but secretly have always wanted.
If I have ever wished I could win the lottery, it would be so I could do awesome things for others for the sheer joy of it.
