The holiday season is upon us. It's easy to get wrapped up in what the commercial industries have turned the holiday season into. Buy, buy, buy....According to the media, that's how we show our family and friends we love them, right?
What we need to try to remember is the TRUE meaning of the holiday season.....GIVING. It's not about buying the biggest, the most or the highest price present(s)...it's about giving from the heart, making a difference in the lives of others when you can.
