I want to wish all my fellow Painies and their extended families a happy,loving, joyous, grateful and warm Holiday Season.
Try to pace yourself, ignore the well meaning comments that don’t help, take deep breaths and Remember what this time is all about. It is to share love, peace, understanding and giving.
We try to give through toy drives, gifts to World Vision to a charity of your choice. Something that will make someone else benefit, while at the same time making you happy. It is a warm feeling to know that you are paying forward. Mauve even a gift certificate to you friend ” one hour to listen just to you”.
No matter your colour, creed or religion, this time of year is about giving not receiving;and we would all do well to remember that.
Even A small donation to the local food drive, would be welcome. A full tummy is a world of fun to a parent with a hungry child.
My favourite thing to do each year or to buy toys for the Firefighters toy drive. My youngest loves dropping them off. Plus she gets to see a real life Firetruck. Buying mitts, hats and blankets for street people in Canada is awesome.
All I want for Christmas is to know that my blog and Facebook group are helping my fellow Painies and it gives them laughter, empathy, some fire and strength. If this is true it is more than I could ask for.
Have a wonderful season and are getting ready for a new happy healthy painfree New Year!!!!
