Yesterday was Christmas, and today marks the beginning of Kwanzaa. The Solstice (Yule) was earlier in the week, and Hanukkah took place early in the month.
But as hundreds of thousands of families around the world celebrate, hundreds of thousands of other families are struggling to get through the season. For them, this is the first holiday season after the loss of a child or parent, or being jobless or homeless. Take time to remember those who are struggling this season, and help them through. It might only take a kind word, to let them know that you are thinking of them.
Blessed be this holiday season.
