What is your favorite Christmas carol? Does it bring back childhood memories of how your family spent Christmas?
Sometimes those days are great when your family was intact, but for others, it is difficult when your memories are of spending time for Christmas in two houses or missing a parent who passed away.
Today as an adult, the memories may come back when you hear that particular song and it can be painful, but an opportunity exists to turn the feelings around.
Volunteering during the holiday season to make a difference at a boys and girl club for children that may be in the same situation can make a difference. The kids that attend may be in the same situation that you were in growing up and having someone sharing Christmas with them, maybe a special gift to them. It is not always about the presents but rather the love that bonds people together. Merry Christmas!
