Whether you observe Christmas, Yule, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, or another tradition, they all are a celebratory holiday. This time of year is for joy, reflection, peace, love, rebirth, happiness. It's a time when families come together. It's a time when we can look at the past year and remember the goodness while forgetting the bad. We look forward to the new year with hope. It's a good time of year.
It's also a time when we have our purse strings tugged along with our heart strings. We are asked for donations to help a myriad of people, animals and causes. We also want to be able to show our love and appreciation for our parents, siblings, children, friends – the list goes on and on. We are living in difficult financial times and no matter how big our hearts are our purses are small. But I'm going to ask you to open your hearts and your wallets for a family that needs some extra love and support this holiday season.
At a time when happiness, hope and joy seem to be in the air around us, imagine how you would feel should your heart be ripped out and your soul destroyed?
