For whatever reasons or no reason at all I have been extremely fortunate, blessed, lucky in my professional life as well as my family life. Over the past year I've seen more and more examples of hardships being faced by so many people here in the United States and all over the world.
This is of course nothing new, suffering has been around a long time. I guess for me personally it just seems more acute than it ever has before.
Over the past year I've been finding more and more ways to give back with what I have been so fortunate to receive. One of the organizations that I give to is the Salvation Army. I've started an online kettle this year. Here is the link .
If you subscribe to this feed you can follow the link or go to my blog's homepage and view the kettle along with it's progress. If you have a few extra dollars this year I encourage you to donate to whatever charity or organization you can. If you can spare a few to my online kettle that would be wonderful as well.
Thank you and I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday
