A Cold Winter Day and Sharing a Blanket or Two….

Ok so I know it is not really winter yet, Dec 20th is the actual date, but here in New England it is freezing. I am lucky to have a warm wood stove burning hot, keeping my family warm. It is days like today that I can’t help but think of the families who are out in the cold with no place to go. Today my kids and I decided to go through our closets and find blankets and jackets to donate to our local homeless shelter. Here in America, we are getting ready to celebrate Thanksgiving, a time to stop and pause to give thanks for all we have. I challenge to all of us: look to see what else you can do this holiday season to help a person in need.

When I wrote The Rainbow Pants, I wanted to be sure to use a rainbow because I think of rainbows as hope, encouragement, and new beginnings. So my “Holiday Rainbow Hope” is for people to find warmth and full bellies.

What is your “Holiday Rainbow Hope”?
