On this day I count my blessings of family, friends (including my furry friends) health and most of all the joy of every day. Even though it has been a challenging year for me I know so many with little ones that are just wondering where the next meal is coming from or how to keep a roof over the family's heads.
On this day I urge you to take a look at your food stores and donate a few items to your local food bank. If you have old coats or blankets please take them to your local shelter. No one should be cold or hungry on Christmas.
I have done alot of traveling in the last 11 years for my work and the only family I have had to share Christmas with was my dogs. They have been stuck with me hauling them all over this country and have done it happily. No matter the day they are always happy to see me and having them in my life has really been a comfort when I was not able to be with my family. If you feel you could make a forever home for a dog or cat visit your local humane society. There are so many wonderful pets just waiting to make it Christmas everyday for you. If your house is already full the shelters always welcome donations, blankets, food, bowls, litter etc..
Here is my fur family...
