Don't Forget the Families Left Behind over the Holidays

giftThis post was inspired this morning by Margaret Woda's call for everyone to Send a Card to the Troops post.  I hope everyone will head over to her post and hit the link!

I would also like to add if you live near a family who has a loved oner overseas this holiday season stop by and volunteer to help them out.  You can  put up holiday lights, set up a Christmas tree or watch the children while they shop.  If they have packages to mail volunteer to stand in line at the post office for them and if they don't have anyone else to spend the holidays with invite them over for lunch or dinner.

Believe me the littlest act of kindness is appreciated by the family and knowing that someone is helping out at home is a great boast to the service member who is far away from home. 

Share of yourself this holiday season and feel the joy!

If you are looking for a end of the year donation to help support the military please consider the
Fisher House.  The housing and services they provide to families while their loved ones are recovering from injuries are a critical piece of the recovery process for the entire family.

Our real estate office has a list from the local churches here of what the troops need & we have adopted a plan to send several boxes of items to all the troops that will not be able to be home for Christamas. We try to do this every year & along the way we meet some great penpals & also get to see pictures of the kids that they have helped while there. It is truly a blessing to be able to do this every year. Happy Holidays!!

Cindy ~  Thank you for your recommendation on the Fisher House.  I like the thinking outside of the box.  The card phenomenon has spurred even more ideas!  Thanks for caring and doing something for our troops!  :)

Cindy, what a great reminder.  People often forget about the families left behind...often far away from family.  A few hours alone makes it much easier to do shopping, and we all need alone time!

Cindy:  This is an excellent idea!  I especially enjoy the part about helping out our neighbors who might have a tough time decorating for Christmas.  It brought to mind a good friend of mine from my networking group.  Time to email her!!!  Merry Christmas everyone!!!
