REMEMBER TO BLESS THE PEOPLE WHO HELP YOU THROUGHOUT THE YEAR WITH A LITTLE EXTRA SOMETHING DURING THE HOLIDAY SEASON!!!
Do you have people in your life who help you throughout the year? We have a neighbor who has always helped us with plowing our snow if we get a heavy dumping. The last several years this neighbor has been doing extra duty since he knew that my husband was ill and could not do it on his own. There were several times this past winter when we came home from work or a doctor's appointment to find that our driveway had already been plowed out. This brought my family such a relief, because having to hand shovel a long driveway after working all day long is not a fun task. My family tries to do something special for this neighbor of ours each year during the holidays!
You might be thinking that there would be no way that you could do anything extra for anyone in your life. You do not have to go to a huge expense. You could make some homemade cookies or a pie and share your appreciation that way. I know last year another neighbor raked our leaves, and I made them a pumpkin pie to show my appreciation. You do not need to go buy big expense gifts that you cannot afford. I am sure any kind of token of appreciation will be appreciated. Even if you write a thank you note on a Christmas card and send it to them, it lets them know that you are grateful for what they do for you.
This Christmas and Holiday Season remember those who help you throughout the year!!!
