Yes, Christmas is here! Many of us are feeling the warmth from our fireplaces. Warmth in our hearts fueled by the love of our families and wonderful friends.Warmth in our tootsies because we treated ourselves to new boots, while shopping for special presents for under the tree.All in all, most of us are feeling pretty darn cozy, I think.
This year I am asking you to expand your circle of warmth just a little bit wider. Christmas always acts as a good reminder to take extra notice of those less fortunate than ourselves. I hope that this year, as Canadians, both new and old,we stop to appreciate how wonderful life is in our little corner of the world.
Perhaps you might share some of those Christmas cookies you baked, our donate some new warm socks, underwear, blankets or sleeping bags. Most of us can afford to share, some of us forget to.This season I ask you to open your eyes and offer a hand.Sometimes something as small as a hand shake, the acknowledge of another's presence and a Merry Christmas cab change a life. I wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas and a healthy, Happy New Year!
Til next time.
