It is so hard to believe that the holidays are almost here! Where does time go? It seems like yesterday we were in the middle of summer! There never seems to be enough of it and yet it seems to get faster with each passing year. I take it as a reminder to make the most of the time I do have.
The reality is that time is much more valuable than we often realize. Sometimes you have to carve out space for what your priorities are. It can be easy at times to lose sight of what really matters during this crazy season that is fast approaching. This is the time of year to remember those who are close to us but also to lend a hand to those in need.
There are countless ways that we can have a positive impact on those around us. While it is easy to get overwhelmed by the sheer amount of needs and hurts in the world, even one small step can make a difference. Awareness of others can help us to keep a healthy balance and the right perspective.
This Thanksgiving season, I want to be ever grateful for the blessings that I have been given.
