Sometimes we feel like we cannot find the light at the end of the tunnel

…there is no tunnel.

Sometimes we need others to help lead us to light.

Who might need your love and support today?

A Season of Giving For All

For a vast majority of this world’s  inhabitants, the months of November, December and January are filled with celebrations. These are festive and happy times when we share gifts and give thanks for good things in our lives. Some call it the Season of Giving.

It’s also true that not everyone feels a reason to celebrate or to give thanks. However we can help change that with a little effort. Even while busy rejoicing in our blessings, it’s usually possible to find ways and time for sharing goodness with others. Newspapers, radios and websites list multiple opportunities to help others. School children bring gifts for those who have less and also create beautiful works of art for their parents and siblings. Phone calls and letters bring distant relatives and friends closer this time of the year. And, best of all, we relish the excitement of new things happening in our lives.

Why Talk About This Season of Giving? 

Why do I mention this? It’s probably first and foremost because I love this holiday season. I find it pleasing to be in touch with friends and family who live afar. While sometimes challenging, choosing gifts during this season of giving for those I love is exciting. Also, providing gifts for those who have less helps affirm my concern for others. And finding unique gifts for everyone is often invigorating. 

Consequently, I have a BLACK FRIDAY gift I would like to make available to you and your family! It’s a special rate for the purchase of a helpful book on retirement. Entering this new life stage can be stressful for both the retiree and family members. Several years ago, this reality inspired me to write the book, Survive Your Husband’s Retirement. It helps retirees and their loved ones discover the humor in this new life stage. It also provides ideas for countering the unplanned stress that may accompany early retirement. Still other readers have found it helpful for understanding the difficulties retirees first experience in this new life stage. And, since everyone loves a bargain, Black Friday weekend is a great time to purchase the book at a reduced price.
