What did you give?
December and its joyful holidays remind us to give.
More opportunities to serve.
More time to give.
More time to love.
Maybe you don't think that you have much to give.
No doubt times are harder this year and you like a lot of us
have little left over to share.
It doesn't have to be anything of material substance.
There is far more than we have that we could give.
A few of my friends and I go to a neighborhood elderly respite home.
We plan on also going back to the local shelter,
and assist with serving dinner one evening..
to give their staff some much deserved time off.
We all could spare some time.
At the end of each day, we should ask "What else could I have done?"
At the end of our lives we have to answer in the affirmative,
that we gave,
that we made a difference,
that we lived a good life.
Make it a charitable día!
