I have finally finished making the Christmas stockings for the Bethel House holiday stocking project. These will be distributed to local groups and businesses to fill with toys. I have to confess, it makes me feel good to know I am helping to make so many children happy.
In the spirit of the season I encourage all of you to make some kind of contribution to a charity in your area. If you don't know how to volunteer, there are many web sites that will direct you to a particular need in your community. To get you started, here are two. http://www.1-800-volunteer.org/ and http://www.networkforgood.org/. I have to tell you, it is a real "feels good" moment when you realize you have done something to help or bring happiness to another person.
