Today is “Giving Tuesday.” In these difficult times, giving does not have to mean dollars spent but time shared and giving by sharing is free. (We all know “free” is my favorite “F” word!) Maybe you baked some cookies? Place a few in a bag and share them with a neighbor(s) who may be all alone. Maybe you don’t have a lot of money to spend on food but you have time to give at a shelter to serve a meal. Maybe you have some branches in your yard from last season (no judging.) Gather them up, paint them gold or silver, tie them with a bow and deliver them to friend in a yard sale or thrift store vase to a friend. Add twinkly lights and it’s instant holiday ambience! If you don’t have time or the opportunity for any of these suggestions, share a smile. Share a laugh. Share a moment. Give a compliment. Wear the silly hat, be a bit dorky and never take life too seriously; even when it gets serious.
