Holiday Happiness: Giving

Holiday Happiness: Giving

giving kindnessIt is in giving that we receive. ~ Francis of Assisi

 

The holidays are a very stressful time for everyone and an exceptionally hard time for some.  So, until the New Year I’ll be posting a Holiday Happiness post each day to try help folks out who are struggling.  As always you can reach out to me at Happinesskane@aol.com for a kind word or someone to listen. ~ Rev Kane

Tonight I want to talk about giving.  One of my favorite things this time of year is giving gifts.  In giving, without the expectation of receiving, we truly show our ability to be kind and care for others.  I especially like, trying to find a gift that really shows the person I know who they are by finding something that connects with them.
