Time to put a penny in the old man's hat.
If you haven't got a penny a ha'penny will do,
If you haven't got a ha'penny then god bless you.
I sang this song to my kids and I sing it to my grandson around this time of year, because it is a reminder of the wonders of the season and of the great need of the season. For those of us who have our health, family, and friends close this can be a wonderful, enjoyable time of the year. For those who do not have family, friends close or who are not in good health, this time of year is depressing.
This is one of the times of the year when many of us take the time to reach out to our neighbors and friends who are less fortunate than we are. Please consider supporting your local Food Bank, your local Christmas Hamper and Toy drives. You will feel better and your support will be appreciated.
