Share the Spirit of Thanksgiving By Giving
I'm sure we all have a very many things to be thankful for this holiday season. I for one am thankful to have life, family, friends, and of course YOU as a reader.
In the spirit of giving, I'm going to try to share a pie and a blanket this year. If I can squeeze in some time to help in the soup kitchen, I might even make a showing at my local shelter. Hey, how about you?
Why not share your good fortune with those who are less than fortunate as well?
Not all homeless persons are drunks and derelicts. Most are people who were just victims of a bad turn in life. Some are military vets, even more are moms, dads, children, elderly persons. Perhaps you too can volunteer some of your meal or time this Thanksgiving with a local shelter? OR, maybe you could help someone on the streets with some food, a drink, some clothes and a blanket? It may not seem like much of a gesture to you, but it will mean a great deal to the persons you help, and they can really use it. It's getting colder, and these people aren't just homeless--they are our fellow man. It could've been anyone of us out there, so let's pay it forward by showing that we care. The more help we provide, the more we help to improve the quality of their lives. Surely, that is one more step closer to self-sustainability for these people and their families.
Take care and God bless you,
