Good afternoon everyone,
I hope everyone is well. But I know that not everyone is. Holidays can be hard for many. Family may not always be associated with a good memory. Yesterday, I heard a man share how hurt he is this season, with all the struggles that he has to face from day to day. As I sat there feeling excited I was about cooking and how great family time would be, I realized that everyone has a battle and holidays do not make those battles go away. This season, I encourage everyone including myself to be mindful of not only what we ourselves go through but what may be on the hearts and minds of others. Pray for someone. Remind them that they are not alone. And when you find the courage, do something. Stand up for those who can’t stand up for themselves. Find new people to love. The world around us is hurting. Let’s all play our part.
