What the holidays mean to me.

Happy Holidays

Happy Holidays!

 

It is so easy to get caught up in the holiday hype of Christmas shopping, getting the decorations up, cooking the dinners, and all the other things we do to prepare for the holiday season. And don’t get me wrong, I enjoy all that also.

But how often to we stop and look around at what we do have this year compared to those who may not have it as good as we do?

Like most of the people in the world, I have my financial struggles. The job market is overrun with qualified people looking for work, loans are still difficult to get, and we are forced to do more with less.

But I also have much to be thankful for. A wonderful family that supports me as I face the challenges of running a small business. The fact that I HAVE a small business to own. Even the more simple things like a roof over my head and food on my table. There are people who do not even have that much.

So I urge you to take a moment this year to stop and look around at what you do have…. then look to see what you can do to help someone less fortunate than yourself. Something as simple as volunteering at a soup kitchen this holiday can mean so much to someone else.

Be thankful for what you do have and share it with someone who may not this year.

Happy Holidays Everyone!
