have the responsibility as caregiver to a second generation of young people – their
grandchildren. Many have assumed the entire or sole responsibility of raising
their children’s children or grandchildren. For some, such may be a struggle
and for others, much like riding a bike after not having done so for a long
period of time – such requires time to readjust and still others – it is smooth
Such may not
have been that which you initially intended, but you assumed the
responsibility. Grandchildren are a blessing and can be blessings in disguise. In

Blessings in Disguise, I want to introduce you to the Haskells; they have the

- Keeping Hope Alive this Holiday Season – Pt. 3 Thanks and Supplication for a
better Tomorrow by Mrs. Dorothy Barron
Parents, it is never too early to teach children about
bestowing upon others kindness and charity.As Parents, we set the example.On today in our 4 Pt. Series - Keeping Hope Alive this Holiday Season –
Pt. 3 Thanks and Supplication for a better Tomorrow; you will be introduced to
two families. You can also use their or your own situation this Christmas as a
Is your Christmas going to be prosperous and abundant or less
fortunate with your having to be frugal and thrifty? If frugal and thrifty due
to being less-fortunate, do not bemoan that which you do not have.If you have little ones make your and their
holiday as merry and festive as you can; remember we all have much in which to
Note; the above statement was to “make YOUR and their holiday as merry and festive as you can....”
You do not have to spend a lot of money to create a festive look – just some
The first family is the Belgardes; they have much and much
for which to be thankful. Out of their abundance of wealth they made sure some
less-fortunate individuals benefitted from their abundance, although you will
never hear them boasting about that which they have done for others.
The second family is the Belgraves; their story is very
different. Dad has been out of work for many months and the family’s savings have
dwindled, but Mom does not let what she terms “a little setback” spoil the
family’s Christmas Holiday and why should it? The Christmas Holiday to these
families is all about Family and being together.
You will learn a bit
more about the families in Pt. 3 of our video at Parents Taking Charge in
Education Channel at YouTube. The Christmas Holiday to these families is all
about Family and being together.
As we continue to hope; have faith and work for a better
tomorrow; on today, let us appreciate, enjoy and give thanks for family and
that which we do have for we all have much in which to be thankful.

Keeping Hope Alive during the Holiday
Season 4 Pt. Series - Pt. 2 Santa, bring him Home by Mrs. Dorothy Barron
In our 4 Pt. Keeping Hope Alive during the Holiday Season
Series, we present Pt. 2 Santa, bring him Home.You will find the link to the accompanying video below.
On today, we want to offer and express cheer, hope and thanks
to our military and their families. We want to continue to be mindful of the
sacrifices you make on behalf of this country.
To truly understand that which you and/or your families encounter
we would have to walk in your shoes or personally experience that which you do.
Though we may not always remember to say thank you; we appreciate you and the
sacrifices which military men and women and families of those who serve have
encountered and/or continually encounter, we want to stop and take this
opportunity to do so now.
As a country, we often take so much for granted. Those of us
who celebrate the Holiday Season can do so in a certain environment; one in
which America is not physically at war on its own soil. Many can experience a
sense of peace and peace of mind because men and women of our military are
serving in various parts of the world helping others and keeping America at
peace from external forces.
Prayers for your peace and safety are extended this Holiday
Season. For those afar, should you not be able to come home during Christmas or
throughout the Holiday Season, we hope very soon, thereafter.
In return for your service and sacrifices may America and
Americans continue to work toward making your
hopes and dreams a reality.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays
to our Military and their families!

and Magical Christmas made by hand by Mrs. Dorothy Barron
Mrs. Dorothy Barron of Parents Taking Charge in Education
presents during the month of December our 4 Pt. Series - Keeping Hope Alive this Holiday Season. Each part of the series has
an accompanying holiday video consisting of 2-3 illustration panels and a
narrative which will be featured at our Video Channel on YouTube.
This Series portrays “hope,” depicted sometimes through
wishes; other times, endurance and most often through faith demonstrated by
action(s). Regardless of wherever and whatever the circumstance(s), hope does
not allow one to give up; hope sustains! Hope gives one the fortitude to
keeping seeking and searching - looking forward and relying on a brighter and
better tomorrow. Instead of providing you with the title of each part of the
series, we would rather surprise you each week with both title and Holiday

Being a one-Parent family is not easy. Many challenges are
greater because one Parent for the most part is doing the parenting alone. It
is perhaps this time of the year for a Parent(s) when if unable to provide you
little ones with the gifts they desire or you would like them to have sometimes
give Parents the impression that they have somehow failed the child and/or
themselves in some respect as a Parent. It does not make it any easier with all
the commercialism surrounding the Holiday. Many within society’s culture
measure the value of a gift by the popularity of the gift and/or cost; which
for some equals the worth of both giver and receiver and therefore, the most
expensive gifts are the most desired by some.Do not allow society to determine your standards, values and/or worth.
Gifts which are the
product of our own labor(s) and given out of love are still the most priceless
and can be the most desired gifts of those who know and/or realize their true
worth; they will often evoke memories that can last a lifetime.Some of the most beautiful, loving and unique
gifts do not have to be purchased; they can be created by one’s own two hands
as shown in Pt. 1 of our video.
May this season and the New Year bring you and yours all
your needs and many of your desires!
