As we move through this week, looking forward to Christmas, may we remember that not everyone is having a holiday to remember. Let's make this holiday memorable by finding those around us to lift up, to listen to and to love. It can be the simplest thing, like a little home-baked loaf of banana bread or a plate of cookies, that will bring warmth and kindest to another's life.
Find your community's Angel Tree or Sub for Santa and provide Christmas for a family that's struggling. Visit an elderly neighbor. Put a note in the mail to someone who has served you, someone who is lonely or sad. Call that long-lost relative. Set aside differences. Forgive.
We can make the world a better place in the way we live our lives. Let's just do it! One small deed can truly light the world!
