Giving Back this Season:
In the hustle and bustle of the Holiday Season it's so easy to get caught up in the materialistic aspects of the season. With so many things needing to be done, there are decorations that must be bought or made... There is endless amounts of lists, shopping, meal planning, traveling... We all, even those of us whom don't really have endless amounts of events to go to, still get caught up in the preperations of it all...
However, it's important to remember the REASON for the season. Christmas is about much more than the newest XBox or iPad or iPhone. It's more than just buying loads of presents. It's about remembering the ultimate gift that was given. That gift was second chances. I'm definitely the result of fifth and sixth chances. Those who know me personally, know that I'm a survivor but I've not had it easy. I've had to climb through the trenches.... If it weren't for God's love and his grace and mercy and his precious gift of life to us, I wouldn't have made it where I am.
So, it's important to find ways in which you can give back to those who are less fortunate than you. I know sometimes I struggle to even provide a Christmas for my kids sometimes, but I try to look for small ways of helping someone less fortunate than myself out.

I am in love with these spoons. I was so impressed by the quality of them when I received them. For starters, they come in this beautiful litttle bag which can easily be used to keep your toilitries or whatever you may need inside it! Then the detailing on the spoons themselves is so absolutely stunning! These would make such a wonderful gift for the cook in your life. Although, honestly I can't imagine actually USING them because they are so gorgeous! I would be so terrified to mess them up!
