Doing Something Different

In this time of giving and receiving, try something different. Instead of buying things just for the sake of giving, stop for a moment and think. What can you do for someone to make them happy and lift their spirit? Many people are despondent during the holiday season because they aren't able to meet their needs. What could you do differently that would make a difference in someone's life? Let's all be creative in our holiday giving this year. Make someone smile with joy because they know that they are truly loved and cared for. Today, do something different. What can you do to make someone's day a little more special? Be the angel that you would want someone to be for you.
Nature has it's own way of celebrating the holiday season...
(It seems the more I think I understand the holiday season, I have a harder time grasping why we get so caught up in the marketing of the season. Buying becomes frantic and overwhelming. It's nice to be away from the city, as it turns into a shopping frenzy. It may be little rural where I am right now, but walking on the beach beats pushing someone aside to get the latest technology wonder. I wish you all a peaceful evening.)
