Christmas spirit?

I don't know if it is the Christmas time or the fact that it is so cold but more and more often my mind lately wanders to the people who need help - the homeless and the old and the ones who have no money to get presents for their kids. The other day i was going to buy some stuff for wrapping my gifts. Thankfully all my shopping has been done and for the first time i haven't left it to last minute. I saw this old lady sitting in a bus station. She looked cold. She wasn't homeless or anything but she just looked cold. And i started thinking of all the poor souls with no warm home with christmas tree to go to. It felt so wrong going to the shopping mall after that, watching all the people just spending and spending. I got my wrapping paper and then bought 5 pairs of woollen socks and gloves and took them to this church, which does a lot to care for the homeless. It felt almost ridiculous to be doing so little...A young man was there to take the stuff from me and with a big smile he said that i needent worry, they will find the people in need and make the best of my gift. I don't know, it still didn't feel nearly enough...i just hope there's loads and loads of people who think the same way, even if it is only in Christmas time...
