December's Lesson

Over the next several months while Rosemary has such a busy schedule, is on tour etc, Samantha will be collaborating with her on writing the lessons for the month. Rosemary is very much a part of the process, but not always able to sit at a computer and write. Since Samantha has grown up with the teachings of Rosemary, we hope you'll agree that she's the ideal candidate to collaborate with her mother in order to bring you a lesson every month.
Good Will Hunting
It's our favorite time of year, my Mum's and mine. Christmas. As British citizens, we don't celebrate Thanksgiving, or some other holidays from around the globe, but Christmas, with old St. Nick and the magical mystery surrounding this time of year, is what we really make a big deal of. It's a very special time for us, even though we're older and there are no children in the family, (apart from the puppy dogs, of course), there's still a magical excitement in the air around our house.

It's our favorite time of year, my Mum's and mine. Christmas. As British citizens, we don't celebrate Thanksgiving, or some other holidays from around the globe, but Christmas, with old St. Nick and the magical mystery surrounding this time of year, is what we really make a big deal of. It's a very special time for us, even though we're older and there are no children in the family, (apart from the puppy dogs, of course), there's still a magical excitement in the air around our house.

But as well as this private special time for us, I've also always known my Mum to look outside of our own secret world and think about others at this time especially. Most years she'll sponsor a family, perhaps buying clothes, gifts, and necessities for them and the feeling of giving and acknowledging others less fortunate is just as important in our house as anything else.

There are so many people who need our and YOUR help, or acknowledgement year round, but this time of year seems especially important. It's a time that families and friends gather and rejoice, love and share.

So what of those families who have lost someone special? What of those who have someone fighting in Iraq, or a friend or family member who is too far away to touch, or be touched.

This month's lesson comes in two parts:
Part One:
Do what you can for those who are less fortunate
Here are some suggestions and things that we've done in the past:

In a restaurant ask for a doggie bag and give the rest of your meal to someone on the street who needs it

When cooking make an extra portion or two of food and then find your local shelter to donate it

Check your pantry and see if you can spare a couple of cans of food

Cut out coupons and hand them in to your local charity in time for them to use them

Spend some time with a child who doesn't have any family

Smile at a stranger

Bring a gift to a children's home where they wouldn't ordinarily receive a gift

Bring an orphan into your home for Christmas dinner


Now your lesson is to make your own list, Do as much as you can. Any small act doesn't go unnoticed, or unappreciated and doesn't have to cost a thing, besides you time and good will. But once you've made your list you HAVE to follow through with the things you feel you can do.

Part Two
Acknowledging and remembering those who have passed, or who can't be with us at this time of year. Showing love and respect will give those who aren't with us strength and the knowledge that you're thinking about them. Thoughts are living things, thoughts can travel far and wide and so it's important to send our positive thoughts out to whoever we can.

Here are some suggestions:

Light a candle for someone.

Tie a blue ribbon to your Christmas tree to acknowledge and bring healing to those fighting in a war

Tie a ribbon for those who have passed on to your tree, table decoration, etc.

Make a toast in the same vein.


By doing small acts such as these, not only helps you to remember and acknowledge those who aren't with you, but it also gives them strength and power. Not to mention the strength it will give you. Now go out and develop your own way of remembering and honoring someone you care about. Then over the next month share with us in the community pages, or write and tell us what you are doing and how it makes you feel and we'll post it in our spotlight section. We'd love to hear what you do to remember those you love, whether fighting in Iraq, on assignment thousands of miles away, or in spirit world. We'd also love to hear how you helped those less fortunate than you are at this time of year, or indeed anytime.

Happy holidays one and all!
