True Meaning of the Holidays

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , — Tara @ 8:09 pm

Whether you are religious or not, the holidays are all about giving. I am not talking about giving to friends and family, but to those in need. Tonight, we cleaned out our closets and took clothing to the local mission. There were people there that had little or nothing. The clothes we gave will keep them warm during this chilly season.

We all have extra coats, gloves, hats and scarfs. Why not get them out of our closets and give them to people that truly need them? I know I could use less clutter in my life, how about you? Give those extras to people who will apprecitate these gifts.

If you have food on your table and a roof over your head, then you should be thankful. Thousands of our fellow Americans do not have that luxury. No matter how these people got to where they are, we are not here to judge. Just give whatever you can. It can be an extra piece of clothing or a can of food. Rest assured it will be meaningful.

Our lives are truly only what we make of them. Make your life matter and do something amazing in your community! Volunteer, give, or just take the time to talk to someone. You never know what will make the difference in someone’s life. I know tonight made a difference in mine!

With love,
