tis the season

Go here, read this.

Contemplate committing your own random act of kindness. Whether it's giving a coat away to someone who needs it, donating one (or some blankets) to the local homeless shelter or picking up an extra toy for your local toy drive.

Hold the door for someone with an armload of packages.

Be nice to your retail clerk.

Make sure no one you know is alone for the holidays.

Have a falling out with a friend this year? Make the first move to bury the hatchet.

Say "I love you" out loud.

Thank you krix. I needed that. :)

reading that made me cry...then it made me remember one of the reasons i don't like to make such a big deal out of christmas (no tree since 1989) -- because it all gets so out of hand and makes us forget about the important things in life, like being touched...

Lori, You are the coolest Chick.
You and I are on the same page with this subject. If we could only give of ourselves and Love one another more, this season might fill our souls more than any stocking...
I Love you, Chick.

Tis the season. Just wonderful.

I love you and haven't forgotten you either, Lori.

Back atcha, Lori.

Wow...thanks for guiding us to that entry, krix. I *desperately* needed that. I have outdone Mr. Scrooge this year in the "bah humbug" department. So much so that it kind of shakes me. I need to let this message penetrate my heart every waking moment, EVERY day, not just the holiday season.

Thanks, once again, for providing us with a reality check of the truly important things in life.

uh..does saying "I love you" out loud while looking at my pictures of Keanu count? Hee.

Seriously, thanks for that link. I "met" another very interesting person, and I heard something loving for Christmas. And I liked your message as well!

Thanks as always, krix!

Well, I had an extra moment tonight, so I re-read skits' story and attempted to reply (but there was a problem with the site...or I was doing something wrong--more likely). I was reading the comments, I was struck by the fact that I would recognize a name and think "hey, that's one of "my" people".

So, goodnight and sweet dreams to "my" people. Y'all are a great bunch.

Thanks for sharing this Krix. I have honestly been trying to "improve" myself in this department, but I often fall short of what I should be doing. R.J. Girl you hit the nail on the head when you said that we should be doing this every day, not just the holiday season. I needed that reminder. *Hugs* to you all!!
