A gentle reminder that the holidays can be a difficult time for many of us, and how important it is to take the time to help those in need — big and small. Whether you donate to a local or international charity, help out at a soup kitchen, babysit so a frazzled mom can shop or have some personal time, or visit the elderly or ill, it's through these gestures that we truly celebrate the spirit of the season. Happy holidays! The sweet photograph is by Debi Treloar.
