This post is inspired by the Michael Jackson song, "Hold my Hand" featuring Akon.
It reminded me of all the millions of people out there struggling this holiday season. The holiday season, while it may be happy for alot of people, is also a very sad time for many. This is a time when people need each other! This is a time when the smallest and simplest things can make the biggest difference in someone's life.
To often, I personally take family and friends for granted. I have been blessed to have such a great family, much less a family at all. It never crosses my mind to spend a Christmas alone without my family. There a so many people out there that have nothing; no family, no friends, no warm bed to sleep in. So many are struggling, in need of a friend or companion to help them through this tough time. What can you and I do this holiday season to make a difference in someone's life?
I challenge everyone that reads this blog to do some thinking about what small things you can do to help someone in need. With such little effort or sacrifice we can make someone feel special. The world needs you and I and I believe that it is our duty, as human beings, to do anything we can to help others around us. Life is way too short and there is no reason that anyone should be upset, sad or depressed during such a wonderful holiday.
This holiday season, grab someone's hand. Hold it tight.....real tight, and let them know that they are cared for! You and I can and will make a difference.
Hold my Hand- Michael Jackson feat. Akon
