We have a lot to celebrate in February including Weddings Month, Snack Food Month, Library Lover’s Month, Hot Breakfast Month, Heart Month, Grapefruit Month, Children’s Dental Month, Cherry Month, Bird Feeding Month and Black History Month.
It also is an excellent time to remember all those people who have trouble getting out. A lot of us, as we age, have a particularly hard time once it gets cold out. Everything seems a little slower, a little harder to get through, after it turns cold. With that in mind, its a good time to check on your neighbors and loved ones. They might just need a hand with outside chores or even a simple trip to the store to pick up some necessities. That having been said, I send out a big thank you to a caring neighbor who did just that for a loved one of ours. Thanks for being there and for taking the time out of your day to help out! Great job!
