I hope you have fun,
The near and the dear ones,
The old and the young.
- John Lennon
In this last post of 2011, I just want to wish everyone an absolutely beautiful holiday season and a Merry Christmas. While this is such a busy time of year for most of us, it is also such a wonderful time. So many people are doing kind and generous things for others ... you can just feel the energy of goodwill swilling about us like snowflakes. If only we could remember to spread that goodwill all year round.
Amberlyn Fett was a young woman of 22 who passed away last month after a lifelong battle with cystic fibrosis. But before she died she established Amber's Angels, an organization which delivers Christmas gifts to children in hospitals. The article below describes it best, copied from the Dripping Springs Babble. If you haven't yet found a charity that truly speaks to you this holiday season, please consider Amber's Angels and join me to insure that her dream lives on. I'm sure that even $20 is so very helpful when buying Christmas gifts for sick children.
