    When moms want to give *more* -- Susan Shaffer Guess

     
    Photo requested by CNN's Kelly Wallace for story on holiday giving

    Susan Shaffer Guess, a mom of two and co-founder of a foundation to fight bullying, says she and her family have been writing notes to each other for several years and leaving them in each other's stockings to read on Christmas morning.

    Her girls decided a few years ago to leave the old notes in the stockings and read them each Christmas, she said.

    "We laugh at what was written on previous years, particularly when they were younger," said Guess. "It always makes me smile, brings a tear to my eyes, and reminds me how much we have to be grateful for."

    "It forces us to look beyond the gifts and into our hearts," she said.
