Holidays are one of the hardest times for military families separated by deployment. It is also one of the best times for friends and neighbors to lend a helping hand. It isn't about money it's about a few minutes or a few hours to help with the little things that need to be done.
Simple things such as helping put up their outside holiday lights or getting the Christmas tree in that pesky stand. How about volunteering to stand in line at the post office or UPS store for them. Does mom or dad need a few hours to get the shopping done? Then offer to keep the children occupied while they head out. Have a video camera? Help the family make a holiday video to post for mom or dad to see. There are so many little things during the holiday season (and all year long) where an extra hand is appreciated.
It is the little things that we do during the holiday season that can have the biggest impact. Lending a helping hand is a precious gift that will be appreciated by not only the family left behind but by their loved one far away. This year I've helped two families with putting out their Christmas lights and putting getting their Christmas trees home and in the pesky stands.
Share of yourself this holiday season and feel the joy!
