be the light

we’re in the thick of the holiday season, and that means many of us are spending priceless time with family and friends. some plan all year to make long trips to share in the presence of loved ones during these months. but while we do this, please don’t forget to reach out to those who are faced with this season as being a time of pain, mourning, and loneliness. think of someone in your life that may be missing that centerpiece of loved ones that we decorate the holidays around. whether it be due to loss, abuse, or other struggles, reach out. let them know you’re there. make yourself their centerpiece this holiday season even if just for a moment. going out of your way to share kindness mends hearts and saves lives. ive lost some centerpieces from my family, but I will continue to celebrate them still. make it your priority year round to share love and light with all. be kind.
