4 out of 5 dentists recommend this WordPress.com site



Material things are nice to have, can’t really say that I don’t enjoy getting or giving them. But there are things worth more to me than my computer, music collection, movie collection, clothes, shoes, and the like. Those things that matter most to me can’t be found at stores and/or purchased with money. 

Time, effort, friendship, and love can be given to others without having to spend a dime. One could offer to help an elderly neighbor by shoveling their snow or raking their leaves. We could also volunteer our time as tutors, hosts/hostesses or perhaps servers at a local soup kitchen, and so on. There are other ways that we can give that doesn’t cost much, just some paper, an envelope, and a stamp by writing to soldiers who are far from home and just want a way to connect to the outside world. A friend might be having a rough time emotionally and we could lend them our time and be there to listen. There are countless ways we can help and no matter your budget, you can find a way to give.

So many of us just got done thanking those around us for all we have. Now that December is upon us, people are focusing on giving. Well, some are focusing on getting too, but I know a great deal of us are consumed with Christmas shopping, decorating, cooking, and traveling. I want to take some time away from all of that to remind myself that Christmas is truly about giving, but more of our hearts than our wallets. I want to spend this month offering my time and talents to those around me. I will extend this offer to each of you at WordPress. If I could write you a poem, whether it be to cheer you up or perhaps for a special occasion…or perhaps you just need someone to talk to, would like someone to get a Christmas card from, etc….do let me know. I want those around me to know how much I love them and not necessarily based on how much I spend on them either. I want the love in my heart to shine brightly. No matter your faith, no matter what this season means to you….I want you to know how much you all mean to me. So I am reaching out my hand, as it were, in friendship. If there is anything I can do, let me know. And, so you know, this is not just for December. I want those I cherish to know I am here year round. Giving is not seasonal, at least not for me….and nor should it be. ❤

  1. What a beautiful reminder 🙂 and thank you so much,you mean a lot to me too; especially after reading this. You are right, we really all need to reconsider this holiday period and what it really represents. It’s a time of sacrifice and aptly said, it should not be limited to the month of December.
    Please do tell, the idea of writing to a soldier or people in service, I’m very interested in that; how do I get to do this? do you know how I could be a volunteer writer or pen person to a service man or woman?
    Thanks for sharing this, it;s nice to be reminded once more the real and true meaning of Christmas.

      I am actually going to post the picture with the address I found on Facebook in another blog momentarily. Look for that. 🙂 There are also groups that write to them throughout the year, found multiple sites. One is called Soldiers’ Angels. God bless you and thank you for your support! I really appreciate it and I know the soldiers will appreciate the support you give them as well!
