again. How quickly it comes! It seems like we
out of fall – and right into December. I like Christmas
it brings out the good in people. At Christmas, we all give
because it feels good to! It’s the annual time to dust off
cheer and good times, generosity and good feelings.
And I think
that’s the wonderful part of Christmas and ourselves. The
wonderful part about Christmas is that we can give. It’s the
of year we’re reminded tangibly and intangibly about love and giving to
others. In our busy, busy working world, it’s a reminder to
about others and to think of those less fortunate than we
And there are so many who are.
So, this Christmas might be a
good time to take an unwrapped toy to the CTV television station in
downtown Vancouver on the corner of Robson and Burrard. And
you pass the jingle-jangle of the Salvation Army bells outside a store,
if you can, put in a dollar towards a good meal for one of our many
homeless citizens – they eat, too! And if your heart leads
towards a slightly bigger opportunity to give, go to the World
site, and look up “gifts.” For $30, you can buy 3 soccer
a village of children can play, or the same amount will buy 3 warm
blankets for a family to share. $35 will buy 2 rabbits, a
business opportunity for a family.
There are many ways to give. I love Christmas! Do
