In giving season, a helping hand


You’ve probably heard the old saying – “A friend in need is a friend indeed.” Today that was very true for me in a simple act of kindness from a stranger. His help in my moment of need just reaffirmed to me that we live in a community full of giving individuals.

I was backing out of my snow filled driveway to go to work when my car got stuck. I thought – “now I’ll be late for work and who knows how long it will take me to get my car unstuck!” Just as I started to shovel my way out a man stopped his van in the street, got out with his shovel, and helped me dig out. It reminded me that in our community it is the season of giving not just at Christmas time but all year round.

I cannot think of a better Christmas present than to give of yourself to others in need.

Thanks Bill. Merry Christmas!
