Farewell, old year; we walk no more together;
I catch the sweetness of thy latest sigh...
Here in the dim light of a grey December
We part in smiles, and yet we met in tears;
Watching thy chilly dawn, I well remember…
Sarah Doudney 

The 7th day of Christmas…December 31st

 As this year ends, I think It’s important to remember the spirit of generosity that comes with Christmas. Because of this, today's thought of the day is about charity, and how important it is to help out your fellow man! it could be the small change you don’t need going into a jar or the clothing you no longer use, but it all comes together to help make life a little more bearable for people less fortunate than yourself.  

Charity begins at home, but should not end there.

It's been a long and very trying year for many of us, which means hopefully that we've been building our character, making it stronger, so we have a new found strength to carry us into the new year and all that it has to offer.

New Years Eve is a time to say goodbye to last year, put it behind, celebrate all that was good and look ahead. More importantly, New Year begins the process of gratitude and reflection. It’s time to think about what we did last year that made someone else’s life better and what we did that made our own life better and, what we  are going to do in the New Year.


Remember:

If you haven't got any charity in your heart, you have the worst kind of heart trouble.

You said a lot, and the meaning is EARTH Changing:
Charity begins at home, but should not end there!.......
I have quoted the 'Charity begins at HOME' many times and never thought the rest was a GIVEN, but NEVER have I put that in such a striking context. Good brain farming!
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

Having more charity and doing more charity is a good thing to strive for in the new year. Good too to shake off the things from this year and resolve to be move forward as we welcome in 2017!
