Worldwide Day of Service
This December, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is encouraging individuals to participate in a month long initiative to give service called "Light the World." Today is a Worldwide Day of Service where they have asked as many people as possible to serve in any way they feel appropriate.
I love the concept of an advent calendar of service and wanted to do something special for today. It is not my season to go stock shelves at a food bank or pick up litter by the ocean on a Thursday. I decided to do something at home that hits close to home. I sewed these developmental hearts for premature babies. Honestly, I started earlier this week because even simple projects can take ages these day. I was hoping to get them to the post office today, but unceasingly runny noses and damp weather have convinced me that it is wise to wait.
I plan to do little things every day until Christmas. I'm not planning on blogging about most of them, but I might mention a few on Facebook. I'm hoping that this deliberate effort in service will help it become a habit throughout the year.
