This first Sunday in advent is the perfect day to pay an act of kindness forward. Do you know anyone who is in mourning, lonely, cold or in need? Let those Santas, nutcrackers and knick knacks sit in their box a little longer, their day will come soon enough.
Make that telephone call, write a thoughtful card, take time to play with that child, bake a treat or make room for one more around the dinner table today. Let's keep christmas in its right perspective.
