**All orders placed Sept19 - Sept 30 will be shipped on Sept 30**

What comes to mind when you think about December?  Do you think about snow and Christmas trees, or do you think about cookies and spending time with the ones you love?

I know for some, this season can be very difficult.  Often times, loved-ones are missed at family gatherings.

I am always moved at how deeply painful this seemingly happy season can be.  So I challenged myself to be more aware and sensitive this season.  There are a few things that I plan on doing and I’d like to invite you to join me – choosing one from this list is a great place to start!

Thinking of you - soap on a mission

  1. Short and Sweet: email someone and let them know you’re thinking of them.
  2. Snail Mail: Mail a card – either a thank you card or an “I’m thinking of you,” card – to someone you know who needs it.
  3. Going all out: deliver Christmas cookies (or something yummy!) to brighten someone’s day.

In the past, I would bake all sorts of Christmas cookies and drop them off to neighbors and friends… It puts the biggest smile on even the grumpiest of faces.  I’ve also invited military friends who are separated from their families to join us for dinner or other events throughout the month.

There are many ways to show others that you care about them!  What ways have you reached out to your neighbors and friends who may be lonely or struggling during this season?  I’d love to hear your ideas!
