Never get tired of doing little things for others, sometimes those little things occupy the biggest parts of their hearts – Unknown

A Christmas story..
When I was little, my grandpa had cancer. He and my grandma were exhausted from all the treatments and emotions over the previous months, and so decided not to make the two-hour drive to have Christmas with the rest of the family. So my mom arranged for us to drive to their home without them knowing and when we arrived, we all stood outside their home singing Christmas carols to surprise them.
I’ll never forget the look on my grandma’s face when she drew back the curtains to see what was going on outside — it makes me tear up just to think about how excited she was. My grandpa died a month later, but my grandma has always said how grateful she was that we didn’t forget about him on what ended up being his last Christmas.
Sometimes the best gifts we can give each other at Christmas is our time. The story above reminded me to be more thoughtful and considerate when it comes to giving this year. Often we can get caught up spending far too much at christmas, when deep down, we all love receiving gifts from the heart.
