Gathering around the table with family and friends is a wonderful tradition we share each year. I love it because it gives us pause, and allows us to focus our attention on all we have to be grateful for. For most of us, we are very blessed and have abundance of celebration and people to share it with at this time of year. But this is not the case for everyone. Recently my friend Robin Rice found within her momma’s heart a calling to share her abundance of love with a particular community. The LGBTQ community has many members who have a difficult time at the holiday season. They are often separated from family, some are homeless, many feel misunderstood and often they look to the holidays with heavy hearts. This year Robin created a spectacular opportunity to offer hearts of love to this particular community through a unique approach with a website, Your Holiday Mom (www.YourHolidayMom.com).
Everyday from November 22 through January 1st messages of love, appreciation, delight and care are posted for the children, teens and young adults of this community. No one should feel alone or unloved EVER, but especially during the holiday season. What better way to put a smile upon a face, to add cheer to someone’s heart or to ease someone’s pain than the love of a mother? Mother’s love heals, it bolsters, it radiates and it understands.
I strongly suggest you visit the website, your heart will respond much like The Grinch’s and grow three sizes in one day! If you like what you hear and see, please post it through your social media sources. If you know a member of the LGBTQ community, please share it with them as well. Our lives are far too short to not offer as much love as we can within our communities. We don’t need to know where it lands or how it impacts whomever it touches. We can trust, if it is of love, it will be right, it will be good and it will be beautiful.
I wish you the happiest of holidays and many blessings ~ Lisa
