Lesson learned: Joy to the World! All is calm – all is bright! Yes, the festive Christmas season is upon us! But for some individuals, this isn’t the season to be jolly. Health concerns, medical procedures, loss, unemployment, relationship issues and the strains of everyday life can drain the enthusiasm and positive energy from many people during the holidays.
That’s why “practicing random kindness and senseless acts of beauty” is especially important. A friendly smile, a tender touch, a kind gesture, a word of encouragement, a prayer or an anonymous gift could be the perfect present for the person who is struggling. It could just make a world of difference.
As we light our candles throughout December, let us be mindful of those who would benefit from that random kindness and senseless act of beauty and provide them with a beacon of light and hope!
Happy Hanukkah, Merry Christmas and Happy Kwanzaa!
