G - Grinch's be Green with Envy

Date: December 7th
Letter: G
Topic: Giving

Grinch’s are green with envy.

Watching How the Grinch Stole Christmas proves my suspicions.
All the humbugs in the world just need a little love. They’re envious of the family that comes together and stays together. So many families aren’t able to get together during the holidays but they still exude the Christmas cheer because they know their family would be there if they could.

Some don’t have family, period. It could be a various number of reasons but our job is not to speculate but help turn those frowns upside down (don’t judge the cliché… I’m not perfect).
This holiday season think about helping out a local shelter, befriending someone who is struggling, or give someone a pick-me-up. It doesn’t have to be big. Something as little as buying some a cup of coffee, or sharing a favorite book with someone who seems a little lost.

This is the season for giving and instead of only giving to those loved ones of yours think about branching out.
Do you have any plans to give back this holiday season?

I'm trying to Be Positive more often and will let the Random Act of Kindness hit me whenever. Seems it's the littlest things that can go a long way :-)

My husband - who has a lovely (ha) wife and two (mostly) sweet sons, is the biggest Grinch I know. It's so irritating!! But just for you, next time he says something annoying about the season, I'll just smile and not throw out the comment I know I'll want to!

I think it's great that we have a season where people think more about giving. But I wish people would think about it all the time. I know that I've been blessed in many ways. Giving back is only fair.
