We are grateful to have some generous donations this holiday season. We appreciate those who have been so kind and thoughtful: Connie Gordon for sharing her Christmas caroler decorations, Teresa & Donna Levin for the lovely carved Santa and reindeer Christmas decorations, and Melba Hagman for the wonderful puzzles we will soon have available for checkout. We also are thankful for the numerous book donations made throughout the year.
I know you try to stay positive as much as you can. Let's also prioritize love, forgiveness, empathy and compassion. The holiday can bring joy as well as pain for some who are dealing with things they don't talk about. Kindness really goes a long way!
