As I was thinking about all the things I had to make sure to put on my calendar for the busy holiday season, I had a thought. This is the busiest time of year and we are trying to do our best to be thoughtful and give. It is amazing that we can manage all the pressure of the shopping, decorating, parties and still remember to give of ourselves.
It is a wonderful time of the year because of all the things that can be accomplished. It is amazing that we can accomplish the food drives, donating blankets and clothing, singing carols, and visiting those who have less. There is so much good that people do and there are great sacrifices made during the season that create such a unique atmosphere. There is so much effort in making people happy and making Christmas great for everyone, not just their own families.
We are blessed to have the reminder of the season to help us be better people and to remember our neighbors and their needs. It is a great opportunity to make giving easy, to provide great experiences to do service and show others we care.
As we continue to mark up the calendar, the spirit of Christmas settles in and amazing things are accomplished to make this the most wonderful time of the year.
