Home Is Where the Heart Is

family dinner web“I’m homesick! I’m homesick!” “But you’re at home!” “I know — and I’m sick of it!” A house is not the same as a home. That’s not just true in the dictionary — it’s true in our lives. Turtles and snails aren’t the only ones who carry their homes with them; we do it too! Holidays are home times. Like the pillow says, “All hearts come home for Christmas.” Home is the place where you feel comfortable. The physical location can change over time. Home could be a barracks, a tent, a trailer, a cell, or a hotel room.

The Spirit of Giving - Volunteering in the Community

volunteers working in soup kitchen webHave you done your holiday shopping? If the answer is yes, you’re well ahead of the rush.

The key is to give without expecting anything in return. The Bible verse, “It is more blessed to give than to receive” (Acts 20:35, NIV), is quoted often during this time of year. Most religions support this principle, as does science.

A wise old friend of my family once said, “The greatest gift is the gift of time.”

Holiday Memories

Seniors and the Holidays webFor a Holiday that started out simply to honor the birth of the Savior, it certainly has evolved as no other in history. Nothing during our calendar year even comes close. And whether you bah-humbug through the entire month, quietly, have 120 Disney characters on your lawn, or fall somewhere in between, it can play on your emotions. Nostalgia plays a powerful tune for me starting mid-November because I collect vintage ornaments and decorate dozens of trees, big and small, each year.

Horseplay with a Purpose

Would you believe that horses can help people with Alzheimer’s? Can you imagine a horse or pony decreasing anxiety and agitation? Do you know that a visit to a horse farm -- grooming, walking or even taking selfies with a pony -- can create a calming effect in a dementia sufferer that lingers long after the patient returns home?
