Give the Gift of Girl Scouts this holiday season

Holiday shopping just became easier with a unique offer from Girl Scouts of Western New York. GSWNY is offering an annual Girl Scout membership with four additional gifts for her to unwrap.

Girl Scout membership will give your girl small gifts all year long as she builds confidence, tries new things, goes new places, and makes new friends. Did we mention the $2,500 annual college tuition rewards?

  • Personalized membership certificate
  • 3-D 18” Create Your Own Llama Puzzle with markers

A Season of Giving

Thanksgiving Feast

The holiday season is right around the corner and I am reminded of Andy Williams’ song, “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year.”  Great food, good conversation, and spending much needed time with family and friends makes this time of year wonderful. 

Over the Thanksgiving holiday, I happily crossed off of my “to do” list spending quality time with my family.  It was great to slow down from the pace that I keep on a day-to-day basis to reconnect with my family.  I always enjoy reminiscing about the past but it is equally important to also create new memories.  That is why this year I am going to spend my energy recharging and refocusing on those things that are important to me. 

Susan Taylor, Emeritus Editor for Essence Magazine says, “We need quiet time to examine our lives openly and honestly – spending quiet time alone gives your mind an opportunity to renew itself and create order.” 

While we take the time we need to renew ourselves, let’s take a moment to help those in need. Consider volunteering at your local food bank, donating toys to underserved youth, or giving a monetary donation to an organization whose mission aligns with your values.  There are so many worthy organizations that can use your talents to further the organization. 

Mahatma Gandhi said it best, “The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.”

Happy Holidays!
