.:*:.Tis the Season .:*:.

First and foremost let me say how amazing the holiday season is! So many people go out of their way for those who are in need!! CHRIST-mas is the holiday that often leaves me to reflect on my life and where I am in life and how I got here! One word Christ! Being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Later day Saints... As it is written on all the church buildings is... The Church of JESUS CHRIST of Latter Day Saints! With the emphasis on Jesus because this is His church! I often wonder am I a good person? Do I got out of my way to help those who seem to need it? Do I do my personal best at making this world a better place? Jesus was and still is the ultimate example of service! As a member of this church I am taking upon me His name! When people look at me, who I am, what I do, why I do it... are the going to see HIM? Jesus Christ = Shay Harvey! As such I should represent Him is such a way!
Many people are huge advocates for service during the holiday season! Food shelters extend the invite to donate food or time at the local soup kitchen. On the radio we hear countless calls for volunteers to this and that!! While I feel that is all fine and good and love the selfless spirit during the holidays I ask this question... Are the homeless and hungry only homeless and hungry during the holiday season?? ANSWER... Negative!!!! To those who are in the giving spirit I say... Extend that hand of service all throughout the year! I am at fault for this too and I am challenging myself this next year to better my outlook! One of my goals this next New Year can be summed up by one acronym... S.A.S.S!! Sass because I can be quite a sass sometimes but it stands for Simple Acts of Selfless Service!! Pretty sweet eh?! :) But my first mini goal of this big goal is to leave notes!! I am going to go invest in some post-it notes and have them on hand in my car! My plan is to leave a little note on a car of someone [I know] when I happen upon it! It's not going to be an epic novel intricately written, and over complimenting this particular individual (because that takes a LOT of sticky notes and in this economy, ya, no) but because a simple "I love your smile! It's the envy of all the major celeb's! Have a good day, Love Shay" can make your day just as much as a wordy ballod using many great, but not needed adjectives!! Remember the key word here is SIMPLE!!! "Hey nice parking job! Hope work went as smooth as you're moves:) Love Shay" The list goes on!! Start small, think small, but the idea of your thoughtful kindness will forever echo in their lives!!
"Actions speak louder than words" and I tend to prove that!!
