Mermaids` Makings

Christmas Child

Today we packed a couple of Christmas shoeboxes for children in the poorest countries in the world. My little one is so excited about the project. She really seems to feel for the children who won`t get any Christmas presents and how lucky she is. She keeps on asking questions about whether or not they have chairs and pens and biscuits. I am very happy that we are taking part in this project.

We read a story online  tonight  of the journey of a teddy bear called Mungo who starts his life in a shop, gets bought by a little girl and then gets put in a shoebox and travels to Africa, making a little boy extremely happy.

My daughter  loves teddy bears, and we have already bought a little teddy for the girl’s shoe box. She  was so excited about seeing Mungo going to a little boy that she immediately decided that we needed to buy a bear for the boy’s shoebox too.

    Niiiiiii armas ettevòtmine! Peaks ka end informeerima, et kas siin ka kusagil sedasi tehakse.

      On küll jah. Siin oma igapäeva askelduste keskel ei tajugi me vahest, kui raske võib mõnel olla ja et väike pisiasigi võib palju rõõmu teha.

    Meie oleme koguduse kaudu kunagi saanud sellised laste jõulupakke, ei mäleta, tulid need Inglismaalt või Soomest või kust iganes. Päris palju aastaid tagasi, Katit igatahes veel olemas ei olnud. Väga põnevad pakid olid ja tekitasid rohkelt elevust.
    Tubli ettevõtmine :)

      Ma arvan, et saime need ühel ajal. Me oleme ka kunagi ammu ammu saanud. Mäletan, et pakis oli veel aadress ja saatsime tänukaardi.

Thank you for taking the time to write a comment :)
