Since it's almost Christmas - where has this year gone, eh? - could I please encourage you to give a part of yourself away to someone in need? Just take one of those finished sticks or canes to a local Salvation Army, or Goodwill Store - or wherever - and give it away - no strings attached. Chances are someone who needs it will buy it for $3.00 or whatever.
Brighten someone's life - help someone in need - this Christmas.
Do I practice what I preach? You betcha - in addition to 13 canes I've given away this calendar year, yesterday I delivered three boxes of misc size/shape wood blocks - to the pediatric dept of a local hospital - for kids to play with as they recuperate and then take home. That's 49 boxes thus far this year and I've got five more in the car - ready. If that hosp needs more, they will call and I'm ready.
Have some FUN this Christmas - give yourself away.
ps - Isn't God good?!
