Today I also posted on my personal Facebook page to ask for volunteers for the salvation army bell ringing on the day that I am in charge in Stuttgart, AR.
For the past 5 years I have organized a day of ringing the Salvation Army Bell, right before Christmas, where my friends, family and I spend the day ringing the bell in front of the local grocery store. I always look forward to this because it reminds me each year of why it is important to serve and help others. I have learned about the generosity of others, and the feeling of giving is better than most any feeling. An experience like ringing the bell restores your faith in mankind just in time for the Christmas season!
On Monday December 21, 2015, I will be in charge of the local bell for the day and would love anyone and everyone in the Stuttgart area to sign up for a shift!!
1:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. is open and you can sign up hourly! (Ex. 2:00 to 4:00)
If you want to volunteer, go to my Facebook page and comment on the second post (of me ringing the bell a couple of years ago). I would love for you to volunteer! Together we can help others remember the reason for the season.
Today is one of those days that gets you excited. It is a new month. The stress and worries that November brought are behind me and now all I can do is look ahead! And I see a huge Christmas tree and fireplace waiting for me down the road. Boy oh boy aren’t you thankful for this time of year? Happy December 1st people!! May you be thankful today for a new month that will bring lots of joy AND may you remain thankful through this crazy time in life! Let the holiday festivities begin!!
Southern and Thankful
