The seasonal lights dim, holidays soon will draw to a close, and we return to day-to-day living. Still we cannot forget circumstances, and the need for giving.
So many of us are fortunate to have a roof over our head, food in the fridge, and money in the bank. Sadly, others are not.
We all see the need.
We live in uncertain times. In this vast global community, or just down the street, we all know of needs that current resources will not meet. Budgets are stretched, programs require increased funding, and, more than ever, we are being asked to help our fellow beings.
Choose a charity, or two, and provide what you can. Money is good, but so is your time.
Not a hand out, but a hand up; a familiar adage we have all heard before. Regularly, but more so in the festive season, we are asked to help those unable to care for themselves.
This season of sharing is the season of caring, and we cannot simply stop.
Keep giving, continue living , and remember the spirit of the season is more than forgiving.
Do your part, do what you can. Know your heart and lend a hand.
