As Christmastime approaches, so many are busy with shopping, cards and baking. Please take time to remember those who have loved ones serving in our armed forces, those who will not have their loved ones at Christmas and those struggling to put a Christmas together in a struggling economy. We have so much to be thankful for; sometimes we just need a little reminder.
