William's Blog...with a smile!


A thought for Christmas.

Here is a thought for Christmas...

There are so many needy families...Yes, I know there are many that play on the charity of others.

But, there are so many that really need just a boost.

Think about helping a needy family this year.

How do you find them...

My wife and I watch all year long and know of several who are really needy and not asking for help.  ( this year we have 2 deserving families.)

We talk to ministers other people we know.

We find a family, and then we do Christmas for them.

Depending on who ages and needs, it may be a food gift card or it may be clothing.

Small kids get toys.

But when ever possible, we do  it anonymous.


This year, think about those needy families who are proud and are trying to do it on their own.

A small boost can make all the difference!

Hi William.  Doing it anonymously is such a full filling experience.

William, great idea, and have done this in the past, and should look around this year too.

Good morning William. In my tradition we call this a mitzvah: a good deed from someone given anonymously. Great.......

The holidays are a time of light, and if we can make someone's life just a little bit brighter, it's truly rewarding.

William there are many that are in of need and so appreciative as well. It's so easy to make it a little bit easier for a few families.

Hi William Feela 

Great post and I love your message about giving to others. I am particularly fond of giving to the seniors in our community and we are having a fund raiser at our Women's Council of Realtors December Luncheon to collect new warm clothes for the home-bound seniors. 

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family. Have a happy and safe holiday season!

Nice job Bill, good to give from the heart for some families in need.
