Thank you for this reminder! I volunteer at a retirement home where so many of the residents do not have family come see them during the holidays. I try to give extra smiles and Merry Christmases during this time!! The holidays aren't always blessed ones, often they are lonely times for the elderly, too!!

To all of us who have family and friends to celebrate with this time of year, ask your immediate family if they know of someone who will be alone.

Ask that person to your Holiday dinner and give them some token that shows you care. Bachelor and bachelorette friends of my sons and their wives have been to our home. Some have even asked if they could come back the next year!

There is more than just custom attached to the breaking of bread with someone. You can almost feel it when they take their first bite.

This was a wonderful message. I am single and will have no family to spend Christmas with. I was in the same situation last year. I volunteered at a church to give the needy and homeless a place to be to celebrate Christmas. It was a wonderful experience and one I will repeat this year. I found that by doing for others, I was able to "see" what my blessings are and to share those blessings with others.
Merry Christmas to you Lotalaffs.

Some thoughts for this holiday season...It is important to remember that not everyone is surrounded by large wonderful families. Some people have problems during the holidays and sometimes are overcome with great sadness when they remember the loved ones who are not with them. And, many people have no one to spend these times with and are besieged by loneliness. We all need caring, loving thoughts right now. May I ask my friends wherever you might be, to be kind to all those you see. Try to give a moment of support to all as anyone might have family problems, health struggles, job issues, or worries of any kind. They might just need to know that someone cares. Do it for all of us, for nobody is immune. We all need help at one time or another.
Wishing you all great health and happiness!
Sending prayers of blessings to all of you!
