True spirit of the season

Tis the season to be jolly …. Or is it? For so many people this is a hard time of the year. Perhaps they have lost a loved one, or the family is split because of a divorce, a fight or just distance and can’t be together. It can be very lonely.

With the current economy, it’s been a tough year for many financially and this is when you really feel it when you can’t afford to buy much for your kids.

So as we all rush around full of Christmas cheer … let’s pause for a moment and remember those who are hurting. Perhaps you can leave some food for the foodbank when you do your next round of shopping, or drop off an unwrapped gift to the Salvation Army.

Be true to the spirit of the season and reach out.
