Ho! Ho! Hope!!!

21 12 2016

This is a tough one, kids.  It’s the blog before Christmas and I am completely humbugged-out. 

These last few weeks have been filled with so much vitriol, so much depression, so much spitefulness, so much blaming . . .

So Wrong.

So let’s STOP IT!

I am not asking anyone to slam on their rose-colored denial glasses or to ignore the very real issues that face us; I am just asking us to look harder at all that is STILL GOOD in our lives. I am asking us to leverage that goodness – to grow it within our hearts and our families and our neighborhoods. I am a skeptic, but I absolutely believe in kindness and generosity and I believe there’s plenty to go around. If you feel like you’re running low on hope or joy, please call on one of the wonderful loving people you know and I’m sure they will share with you.  If you can’t reach them, I’m here every Wednesday, feeling the encouragement from you.  I’ll be happy to send some of that back out to you.

Happy Holidays!

Peace on Earth.

And from our three spoiled-rotten guinea pigs:

Merry Pigmas and Hoppy Hanukkah!

p.s. The Swear-ity Jar (12/14/16 post) has been working great, btw,  and some charities’ coffers are now a little more jingly. Ho! Ho! Donate!
