This is a random Christmas thought that I just wanted to share.
As always I was searching for my next watch earlier this month, when I recieved a phone call telling me that my cousin (who heads a non profit organization that built a school in Nicaragua) was ill with cancer. Which got me to thinking. With all the good work he has done over his life I have never contributed to his organization. As I sat pondering my watch purchase I was overwhelmed with the thought, do I need one more watch?
I rerouted the money that I had intended to spend on a new watch and sent it to my cousins organization. The money will pay the school tuition for approximately 40 kids.
At this time of year I just wanted to share that thought. I am not looking for an atta boy, or soliciting funds for any organization. As I throw money around on watch purchases, at this time of year I was reflecting on how much good that money could do somewhere else.
So for this year, the answer is, no, I did not need one more watch.
Just a thought, thanks for letting me share.
