The Simple Hat

Winter is approaching and with it snow, ice, wind, rain, and any number of uncomfortable weather changes depending on where you live. The simple hat can make just about anyone of any age more comfortable in frigid temps.

So it is time to find the hats, gloves, and scarves and make sure everyone in the family has a set. It is also a great time to think about those kids who may not have such things and make it a family project to grab a few sets while they may be on sale and donate them to a shelter or school.

Many parents are not financially able to contribute to a coat drive or other fundraiser. But a couple pairs of gloves or a simple stocking hat may make the difference for a child who is not well prepared for winter. Use the holiday season to reach out to others and make it a life lesson for your youngsters. Include your kids in picking the items, wrapping them, and delivering them. What better way to share and pass on to others your abundance?

The simple hat.... there is a story in there somewhere. What story will your gift of a simple hat tell?
