2022: What Will You Give for Christmas?

The winds blow cold dry air outside my closed windows. Leaves carpet my browning grass as I wrap my jacket a little closer. Winter can be many things – cold and blustery or sunny and warm. But it is always the beginning of the holiday season.

From Halloween until New Years, the gift of friends and family warm us through a cold season. The parties, food, warm sweaters, and blazing fires keep us comfortable and happy. At least most of us.

I am blessed.  I am blessed with family and friends and a warm place to lay my head at night. Warm food to eat, warm friends to be with, warm pets to cuddle, and the knowledge that I, and my family, are safe, warm, and fed.

There are those without family and friends to celebrate with. There are those who are living on the streets and need our help. What better time to help than when the nights are long and cold, and we have the time to clean out those closets and give to a local charity.

It’s Christmas! Consider this a challenge. What can, or what will you do for your fellow man this season? The tiniest thing is always welcomed. Maybe a book would help make the nights shorter especially if paired with a warm blanket. If you don’t have a lot of money to give, your time is priceless.  

Enjoy the Christmas season with family and friends and remember those who aren’t as lucky as you.

Merry Christmas!
