Merry Christmas!!!

Gift-Giving

This time of the year, hearts are open and the spirit of giving is in the air. Kindness can be seen and felt from people who are normally caught in their own lives and needs. Children are excited as they count down the days to Christmas and vacation. It truly is a special time of the year for most.

Let us remember those who are not as fortunate, blessed even to enjoy this festive time of the year. Their only concern is their next meal or where they will lay their heads. Christmas is just another day and gifts will be something for others to enjoy. A child’s only thoughts and words will be “I’m hungry and I’m cold!” as they quietly bow their heads cry because there will be no toys for them to open.

I’m not trying to make anyone feel guilty for what they have, only to remind us to remember the people next door, your co-worker who has been fasting 3 or 4 days a week because they have no money to eat every day and the food at home has to last. Say a prayer for them and if possible share what you have. Embarrassment or pride will make them say they are fine so, don’t ask just give discretely and walk away. They’ll appreciate it more than words can ever express and please don’t wait or expect them to say thank you. If you see them avoid your eyes or, a tear starting to form, know you’ve touched their heart.

Love never fails, so keep showing it! – Valarie
