Let's Start with a Little Kindness this Holiday Season

Posted By on Mon, Dec 23, 2013 at 3:00 PM

Today, my over-coffee-morning conversation with my special someone was about how difficult the holidays are for many of us. Sometimes in the middle of the post Thanksgiving frenzy of making tamales and special work deadlines, we forget why invitations are difficult for some or why invitations are needed for others.

Not everyone, for a variety of circumstances, has that Norman Rockwell family that pulls together each winter. But there are also those societal pressures that make it difficult, too. I guess I just want to say in this oh so public way, that I hope everyone who is lonely or in pain, that this week hurries along and that you find comfort this season at the movies, with friends or catching up on the last season of Doctor Who or finally watching The Wire (like I am).

Or here's another idea. The video from a CBS Sunday Morning report is about a woman who placed a CraigsList ad looking to rent a family for the holiday (tissue needed). It's an idea or a start on comforting all those terrible feelings that many folks have to deal with every December. I know a few of you out there do it in your own way—well keep it up. And here's a big hug while we're at it.
