Matchbox Love


Do you remember when I participated in the Matchbox Christmas last year?  This was a special project where a group of ladies (including muwahhh) decorated and filled 25 matchboxes for the holiday season.  Once this was completed they were packaged up and sent them off to a location where they were mixed up, divided out and returned for each of us to have the joy of opening a "present" every day in December - all the way up until Christmas Day!  :)

I found such joy and excitement doing this; waking up each morning in anticipation to open the next tiny box and discovering what delicate gift was tucked away inside just for me.

This year I decided to pass this on to another lovely lady and newly found friend who is in need of a blessing and touch of love this holiday season. I had such fun decorating and tucking away little gifts and ornaments inside each box.  Along with the boxes a little tree, white lights and red baubles were purchased to make it complete.

I know what it's like to feel alone and isolated during the holiday season and what a great way to touch the heart of another simply by giving.

May the upcoming holiday season find you where you're at, wrap you up and show you what true love, hope and joy is all about.

From my heart to yours...
