It’s the most wonderful time of the year! As we approach this festive season our hearts are turned to family, friends and the spirit of thankfulness and giving. It is a time when we reflect on the good things in life and share with others. As we button up our coats against the cold of winter, let’s not forget to open up our hearts to good feelings and warm wishes to our neighbors and friends.
This is the perfect time to lend a hand, check on our neighbors, smile and extend a warm greeting. Let’s pause for a moment and look for the good. We will find it in the neighbor who rolls our garbage can to the street, the hard working teen who bags our groceries or the school crossing guard who faithfully and carefully keeps our children safe. It may be the volunteer at the food pantry, the unseen protection of a patrol car, or a newspaper delivered right to our door.
Perhaps we will find the good as we shovel a neighbor’s snowy driveway, send a note of thanks, or give our undivided time and attention to our families.
May we each take a moment to look for the good, find the good and be the good. Indeed, it’s the most wonderful time of the year!
