Christmas is coming……….

I don’t know of another person who is as caring and giving as our dear friend David Prosser. His posts these days are rare, but this morning he reminds us to think of people who are far less fortunate than most of us in the upcoming holiday season, and suggests some simple ways in which we might help just a little. Thank you, David, for being who you are. Cwtch

The BUTHIDARS

Here we go again, it seems like about a month since the last one. But the shops are full of Christmas items and people are bustling around with determination on their faces.. We all want Christmas to be special for our families and our friends. Good, that’s how it’s meant to be.

But, let’s extend the range of our friends to encompass all those currently at war, who aren’t at war against us. All those who have lost their homes and their possessions and some, almost their lives. For a moment though let’s start closer to home. Almost every Supermarket these days has a basket for donations to food banks. These are not handouts to the bone idle but possibly the only food source for the homeless or those who have no work through no fault of their own, Being homeless is not a choice most people make, especially when…

  1. Thank you for sharing!!.. here on the path it is Christmas year around!!.. “It’s not how much we give but how much love we put into giving.” (Mother Teresa).. 🙂

    Until we meet again..
    May your day be touched
    by a bit of Irish luck,
    Brightened by a song
    in your heart,
    And warmed by the smiles
    of people you love.
    (Irish Saying)

    • I’m with you on that, my friend! I’m not a big fan of the holiday ‘Christmas’ any more, for it has become far too commercialized for me, too much about putting money into the corporate coffers and too little about the things that really matter like friends, family, and humanity. But I would love to see the same spirit in people 365 days a year, not just in December! Thanks, Dutch!

    • Thank YOU, Ab!!! Yes, David’s post inspired me to donate to the local foodbank … I usually do at this time of year, but had forgotten this year, what with all the political turmoil and my own health issues. But, I’ve done that now. It’s far too little, but hopefully it makes a bit of a difference.
