The holidays are a time to celebrate and be happy. Just think of how many times we say the word "happy" (or versions of it) in the greetings we exchange at this time of the year -- Happy. Merry. Bright. Joy. Blessed. Wonderful. But when someone in the family is sick, it can be much more difficult to find the HoHoHo in Holidays.
In times of trouble, you have to grasp at every little bit of happiness you can find, which is why it is so important to take the time to support your family and friends who are going through rough times. Even a caring word or a message of encouragement can brighten their day because you're letting them know that you are thinking of them, that they are not alone.
That's why I'm in awe of CaringBridge, a nonprofit that helps families stay connected and supported during trying times. CaringBridge provides free personal websites, giving people a way to show their support for their family and friends who are going through some kind of health journey. When a friend's daughter was diagnosed with leukemia, I saw first hand how CaringBridge served as a virtual gathering place for their loved ones to leave messages of support and love. My friend and his wife were able to update everyone on their daughter's condition without having to respond to dozens of emails -- which gave them more time to spend with their daughter.
CaringBridge provides such a wonderful service! Just watch (and share!) the video below to see how a small word of support can inspire hope and amplify the love:
