You are currently viewing THE HOLIDAYS… Bah Humbug?


As we go into the holiday season, I realize am really thankful. I have glorious opportunities ahead and the ability to put them forth. It is a wonderful time to move forward. It is my time. We have just finished Thanksgiving and the holiday season is upon us. But, how many times have you heard, “Ba Humbug” or some other negative communication about the holidays? The holidays always mean different things to different people. For many, it means joy and laughter, watching children wonder at lights and sounds of the season. Unfortunately, for some, it means none of those things. They may view the holidays entirely differently. They may be alone or in sadness. It could be our veterans, reliving the horrors of war. It could be an elderly person living alone or someone with dementia. Or, they may be those that have lost someone close to them at this time of year. For many of us, the holidays are not joyful as they should be. But, you can make a difference and spread your message of love at this time of year. I am sure you can think of someone. Someone you know needs a kind word, a show of support, or even a hug. Let them know you care and support them at their difficult time. It might make all the difference in the world. I am thankful that I can take the time to lend a hand, share a smile, a kind word, and offer a hug to someone in need. Make it everyone’s wonderful holiday!
