December has arrived, and with it, so many beautiful sentiments of happiness, joy, sharing and caring. There is something about this month that makes everyone feel warmth and excitement in their hearts. Maybe it is because Jesus is born 25 days from today? Maybe because Santa is coming with presents on December 25th? Whatever your belief, we feel December offers an opportunity to give, to share, to spread good will.
From the thought that the true art in giving is to give from the heart without any expectation of a return, we have created a list of 25 inspirational thoughts to encourage you and your loved ones to do something special for everyone around you (including yourself!)
And remember… A gift is something that is enjoyed twice. First by the giver who revels in the pleasure of giving something special and then also enjoyed by the person who receives the gift. Let’s begin!
