Tis The Season

I love this time of the year. Everyone is all happy and filled with
cheer. All I see is smiling faces when I am out and about. The smell of warm
apple cider, hazelnut coffee, and freshly baked goodies in the air just puts
you in a great mood.
As we all are getting ready to spend the holidays with our families, I
want you to keep in mind that there are others out there who are unable to do
so.
This holiday season if you are able to do so, I would love for you to GIVE BACK!
If your co-worker/roommate is unable to go home for the holidays,
invite them over for a meal.
Call your local nursing home and see if you and your children can adopt
a grandparent. This time of the year is extremely difficult for the elderly.
Some of them haven’t seen their families since they were dropped off at the
nursing home years ago.
Put together a care package, write a letter, or send a card to a
soldier overseas.
Go to your local Salvation Army/Chic-Fil-A and adopt an Angel off the
tree. Each angel represents a child in need. Select the angel you want to
adopt, shop for the item and return your new unwrapped gift to the same
location.
You could contact your local homeless shelter and/or soup kitchen to
see if you can come down and volunteer.
Your children have a room full of toys that they are no longer
interested in playing with. Gather up all the toys that are still in good
condition (no broken or missing parts) and
donate them.

 

We all have so much to be thankful for. This year lets be a blessing to
someone else.
