Tidings of Comfort and Joy!

♬It's the most wonderful time of the year♬

The atmosphere is filled with Christmas cheer, the Christmas songs are playing along with the hustle and bustle of shoppers making their purchases, it all seems like a happy scene. The most excited ones are the children who are still filled with enthusiasm in great anticipation of their gifts. For those of us who observe Christmas, we acknowledge that it is the time for us to reflect on the birth of Jesus and the special gift of his life. Yes, we are all a part of the gift giving and the other festivities which is a wonderful tradition. However, we should try to extend ourselves to spread comfort and joy to others.

Here are some great ways to enjoy the Christmas season:

There are churches and organizations who could use your services. Volunteer to give gifts to children. Once you see the smiles on their faces, it will boost your spirits - instant wellness ;-)

Wrap some gently worn clothes and give them to the homeless or donate them to a shelter. You may also donate canned goods or sign up to serve food to the homeless. Helping those in need, puts you in a special place, a new connection is found in serving others.

The most important part of the Christmas season is to celebrate - what is there to celebrate? Your gift of life and the simple ways that you can be a part in making someone feel that they are not forgotten :-)
