The Christmas Season
This looks like a Currier and Ives picture. Holiday lights, the snow, people strolling, shopping. Wouldn't you like to stroll down this street? You wouldn't even mind the cold. Keep in mind how blessed you are this holiday season. Remember it's the season to give back. If you can make someone else's holiday just a little bit brighter...why not do it? My son, Tom, who is in the Marine Corp Reserves, was chosen to give a speech this week to businesses here in CT who have donated to their Toys for Tots toy drive. The Marine Corp collects thousands of toys each year for children who would otherwise not receive anything. So....find something. Send a care package to soldiers serving in Iraq & Afghanistan, find out what the children's wing at your local hospital does this time of year & volunteer your time, help your neighbor down the street who is recovering from an illness...WHATEVER it is....just do it. We all have something to give that doesn't have to be purchased.
