Just In Time...A Holiday Guide

Yes! It's that time of the year again: The Holidays! Are you ready? Are ready for this season? What are you looking forward to the most? What are your plans for this season? To help make your holiday the best it can be, I have done the work for you and have compiled some of my favorite articles for your information on recipes and having a stress-free holiday season.

However, before I go any further; I want to just take this time to say how grateful I am for life. How grateful I am to have a roof over my head, food on my table, and warmth in this cold weather. I pray that you are receiving and acknowledging your gifts, as well.

Don't forget those that are less fortunate, and those who have been affected by the recent hurricane and nor-Easter that embattled the East coast; leaving many families devastated without shelter, without a home. There are many that are still without electricity, without heat. Many still don't know what to do next. The food-banks are running short on food, as the need of the people has surpassed their already low supplies.

Whatever you can do, please do. Let's put the giving back in Thanksgiving. We are grateful for all that we have, so why not do what we can to give to those that are in dire need of our support. Whatever you can do; I have learned that no amount is too small. Whether it is donating clothes, time, money, shelter, food, volunteering, or even a bottle of water and a blanket...it matters. So, as you enjoy your family and friends, know that you can truly be thankful for being a part of helping out another family in need. Thank you in advance!
