It's cold outside! I don't know where you are, but here in Novi it's a chilly 9 degrees out. It got me thinking about how cold it gets this time of year for our bodies, but how on the inside, family and friends can help warm up our souls. What do I mean by that? All four holidays at the end of December have at least this one thing in common, they are meant to be shared with family and friends. Christmas isn't mean to be done by opening up your presents by yourself. On Hannukah, Latkes aren't meant to be made just for you. It's the same with Kwanzaa, it's meant to be a feast with others. New Years Eve and celebrating the new year traditionally involve going to parties or having friends or family over...

That being said, not all of us have family or friends to go to to warm up our souls. Or, we may have them, but with recent loss in our lives, we don't feel like connecting with others. It's ok if you don't feel like spending time with others, but consider this analogy in the long term with your relationships. A log that is in the fire stays warm, but a log that is taken out of the fire slowly dies out. We all need time apart from others, but it's important to get back together with family and friends to "keep warm."

Stay warm everybody!
