Happy Holidays and Season’s greetings St. Martin.

It is the most wonderful time of the year!
A time of giving, a time of cheer, a time of loved ones coming together from far and near, a time of peace, a time of love, a time of wonder, a time of abundance, a time to share, a time to care, a time to be there.
A time to have and a time to give.
My hope this Christmas is for you to have and to give.
May you have love and give love.
Have enough to share, and give of your abundance.

In all that we do this season and throughout the new year, let’s Have a Heart and give someone a reason to believe in humanity.

May we have the opportunity to give back to our community, this time of year and throughout the entire coming year.
May we Have the courage to Turn our me in to we And give or be the gift we would wish to receive.
May we Have the joy of giving in our hearts and give joyfully.
May we all Have a thankful heart and be grateful for those that give to us and to those we hold dear.

Everyone wants to in one way or the other be seen and have their voices heard. May we have empathy to give everyone the place and space to do so.
