“Three things in human life are important. The first is to be kind. The second is to be kind. And the third is to be kind.” – Henry James
As we count our blessings this holiday season, please remember that there are millions and millions of people – around the world – who are hungry, homeless, displaced, discouraged and lonely.
In this, the season of giving, please do what you can to help a neighbor, a stranger, a family in your community.
Donate food, clothing, blankets and toys to your local missions. Help out at your local food bank. Share your Christmas feast with someone less fortunate.
If you dine in restaurants, give your leftovers (that you would normally take home) to the homeless man or woman huddled on the sidewalk. Don’t pass them by, averting your face. Show them compassion.
Spread a little Hope and Kindness.
After all, this is the season of Light… is it not?
May the true meaning of the holiday season fill your hearts and homes with many blessings. Remember to take time to slow down and enjoy the simple things. I wish you, dear readers, much happiness today and throughout the New Year.
Blessings and Warmest Wishes,
