Don’t just Stand there help Santa!

Don’t just stand there help Santa!

As I was checking out the news on the net I came across this heart wrenching story from the Wall Street Journal. It caught my attention because anything related to a child’s welfare I take notice.

Children are taking on the behavior of being frugal these days due to the economy. They aren’t asking Santa for the usually frivolities they are asking for the bare essentials, homes, food, clothes.

My sorrow surmounted when I continuously read this article. Then looking at the interactive Santa map with the stories Santa’s across the states are reporting just made me say get the word out via your blog maybe someone will see it and pay attention in the Santa line this year to these children over hear and perhaps help. You never know.

Santa, Christmas

I was pleased that some Santa’s are taking it upon themselves to really take on the Santa roll and help these children and their parents. The stories are just too much and too many for anyone one to bare let alone a child.

Maybe writing to this real Santa can help I thought this site was just wonderful you just never know.

However they seem to be handling it a lot better and more sensibly than I thought. Now you will get your typical requests for PS3’s, video games and Zhu Zhu pets etc. For the most part children are listening to their parents and hearing that the economy is hurting is all.

Unemployment is slowing decreasing however as President Obama stated in his Christmas special last night jobs are still not opening up and people need help with the bare essentials, utility bills, mortgages, food. He is continuously working to reduce the rate. Meanwhile we are told to hang on as best as we can because it took us a long time to get here and the remedy will be the same if not longer.

Still my heart goes out and hopefully this holiday will still bring good tidings to those that need the help even is someone just gives a little of themselves it could help possibly multitudes. A story comes to mind loaves of bread, fish and Jesus Christ! Hmmm!

Last 57 MINS

As I sit here counting down the last 57 mins to the new year and writing my last post for 2008,  I reflect on what 2008 meant to me.

Thanking God for the ability to still be alive and write this is always the first reflection. There have been ups and downs but the most important notion I can bring from 2008 is that I continued on no matter what!

For 2009 will be more of the same but a stronger driving and positive force has been revived in my spirit.  Not giving up no matter what.

My readers I pray that you have a wondrous, prosperous, and positive 2009!

Keep pushing positively and never give up I am sure this video will help start you on your way no matter what you embark on in 2009!

Happy New Year 2009!
