ACTIVITY: Help Others Hope
Many relatives or close friends may not be able to see you this Christmas, yet they hope to see you soon. Here is a great gift for anyone who is not
able to share in this year's celebrations.
Get a plain calendar for the new year. Mark down in color all important family dates for the year -- birthdays, expected births, wedding dates,
anniversaries, graduations, etc. Paste family photos wherever there is space. Then when friends or relatives look at the calendar, they will find
a hint of what they hope to soon see.
If you have no family members who'd like a "hope" calendar, make one for yourself. Using old magazines, paste up pictures of places you'd like to
visit, people you'd like to meet, careers you'd like to try. Each picture is your own hope for the future.
