Christmas is almost here, fans and friends!
The holiday season is the giving season – a time for goodwill, for reaching out and helping, and for kindness.
People always seem nicer during the holidays – they smile more, they seem to give more to charity – indeed, things are just merrier this time of year.
Of course, kindness isn’t limited to the holidays – some folks seem to make kindness their goal in life. Take this blog for example. I always smile when I see our fans helping each other out in the “comments” section. If someone has a problem, or is feeling particularly down, another fan will post a helpful comment. I think our PCH Blog fans are some of the kindest people on the planet!
I asked my fellow blog writers what’s the kindest thing anyone has ever done for them, and here’s what they said:
Marybeth H. said, “Many years ago, I was out of work and scared, with very little money and no marketable skills. A very kind person took a chance on me, and recommended me for an entry-level copy position. I’ve been able work ever since.”
Laurel U. said, “Here at PCH, people always doing nice things for each other — like just now, a coworker gave me delicious chocolates (yum!)! And, I remember when Gerri G. gave me a high heel tape dispenser after I told her how much I love her high heel shoes. Gosh, did that make me feel special! I am truly thankful for my family, friends and coworkers who make every day more enjoyable — during the holiday season and always!”
The kindest thing anyone ever did for me? That’s easy! I used to work at PCH in the 1990s, and I left the company for the position of Mommy to my two beautiful daughters. However, a year-and-a-half ago, my old boss from the 1990s, David, asked me if I wanted to come back to work at PCH. I told him, yes, I was ready, and here I am, having a blast writing about our amazing products and contributing to this super blog! Thanks for thinking of me, David!
