Last year I started a tradition in my family that became a daily reminder of what I believe is the true meaning of the Christmas season. An Advent Calendar of Giving. Each day between December 1st and 24th my daughters reveal out daily commitment to giving back. When I pulled last year’s calendar out of our box of decorations this past weekend I instantly felt amazing. Good things were about to happen.

Today, my five year old daughters will write a letter to a solider, thanking him for his service and wishing him a Merry Christmas. They were jumping up and down to check the first item. I’m thrilled that they remember last year and am so excited to see where the road ahead takes us.
