What a difficult year this has been for America and the World.

As I reflect upon my own personal trials and tribulations that I've struggled with, I am incredibly thankful for all that I have, even when it seems I have so little.
My trip to Louisiana right after Katrina hit has left a profound impression on my soul and in my heart. There are still over a million people that are homeless, displaced or living in unsafe housing as a result, yet these people still are thankful and they humble me.

I see more and more of our military who have come back from war maimed for life, they humble me. I could NEVER have made the sacrifices that they have and face what many will as they journey through life.

This year I am thankful, for my life, my health, my family and my friends.

Take time to help those less fortuante, not just today or tomorrow, but every day. Take time to listen to those in need and help when you can.

Do not forget the hurricane victims and if you can make a trip to the area and assist, please do so.

Do not forget ANY of our veterans from ANY of the wars, if you can, visit a VA hospital and bring them some baked goods, books and good cheer.

Do not forget our homeless children, or our homeless in general...many are now homeless because of no jobs and having lost everything to circumstances...many just need a helping hand to lift them out of their current situation...perhaps yours.

The best to each and everyone for a beautiful holiday season. Make this season, one NOT to forget....help a fellow American. Take time to listen, to love, to care and to act.


In Peace,
Barbara, Tirawa and Winston
