Mindful Moment

I love everything about the holidays: the decorations, the parties, and spending time with friends and family. What I love most is that feeling of giving back. Every bit counts. We perceive that most people do love the holidays. But for some, this may be a hard time of the year. It may bring back sad memories, a family might not have the means to buy a lot of presents for their family. If you know someone or you are someone in this type of situation please feel free to come and talk with Mr. Fitzer or Mrs. Mac. Remember things may not always be how they seem. You can help everybody by keeping a spirit of joy and spreading it throughout our little community. Thank you.
