Angel tree

Posted in Journal tagged , , , , at 9:47 pm by Jenn

Today was one of the best “feeling” days I’ve had in a while.  I received an email message a few weeks ago about an “Angel Tree” at Scott’s office.  I asked him to pick a name for us to be angels for. 

Today I (along with two of Scott’s co-workers) went shopping for our person – Nastia.  There were no wants and likes on the paper and our Nastia is 14 years old.  We had no idea what to buy for a 14 year old Belarussian girl so we opted for practical, boots, winter coat and sweaters (and lip gloss – every 14 year old girl needs lip gloss).  

I didn’t think about a picture until the box was wrapped, but I am so happy with the gifts and hope that they bring a smile to her face.   The jacket was black, medium length, down filled with a fur trimmed hood and cuffs.  The sweaters were cute, one zipper, one turtle neck and one with a hood.  The boots were black, square heeled (sorry no stilettos Nastia) and a nice warm fur lining.

The gifts will be delivered early next week as many Belarussians are Orthodox and Christmas is celebrated on January 7th.  It is always a good feeling to help someone less fortunate, especially a child.  I’d like to add the “Angel Tree” to my list of Christmas traditions.
