Tis' the Season

Tis' the Season

It is getting to that time of the year when we are all a bit overwhelmed with the Holiday Season. The commercials have started. Have you done your shopping? What about the parties you need to attend? How about signing all of those cards? This is common in my house and I would guess most others.

During the Holiday Season, it is easy to forgot about why celebrate. We all have the best intentions, but it is all encompassing in our lives.

The best present I ever had was helping a less fortunate family for an evening. It wasn’t much and I was supposedly helping a mom and her children have a normal life for the evening at our church. However, it was me who received so much joy from this family. They taught me that not all homeless people are the folks we see on street corners. The mom was smart, articulate with great kids. She had a run of bad luck and all of a sudden she was homeless. This provided me and my family all whole new perspective.

This season take a breath. Consider doing something to help someone else. Who knows? This may be your best Holiday ever.

Happy Holidays!
