Tis the Season to Give Back....... St. Francis House
Merry Christmas Everyone,
I hope everyone is having a great Christmas spending time with their friends and families.
While many of us are very fortunate and have more "things" than we really need, this is a great time of year to think about those who do not have anything at all.
This year my family decided we should start a new tradition to give back and pay it forward during the holiday season.
As part of our Christmas eve activities, our family put together nice little bags filled with warm socks or beanies, a bible, and a candy cane that we would pass out on Christmas morning to the homeless at St. Francis House. Then on Christmas morning we all went to the St. Francis house to help serve meals. It was a great experience for myself, as well as my 6 year old son to give back to those that really need it. It was also very special to see Jacob give 3 of his toys to some little kids that probably did not get anything for Christmas.
So, nothing fitness related today, I just want to encourage you all to take some time in the upcoming year to give back and pay it forward. And remember, as a parent, it is your responsibility to teach your children compassion and provide them with opportunities to give back to the less fortunate.
Merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy 2011.
