Let’s Talk about Weather

Anyway, whatever way you look at it, in the UK, we can talk about the weather. It is our go to when we cannot think of anything else to say. The weather this week has been extremely cold. Most mornings there has been frost, which looks like snow. Where I am from we rarely get any high levels of snowfall. The last time it snowed heavily was last year and even then it didn’t settle on the ground for long.

I am lucky though, and have a warm home, food, and I am safe.

There are many homeless in our country, who have had to stay on the streets without anywhere they can go to for safety. Sometimes we walk past them, thinking about our worries when compared to their lives we have it easy. Even if someone has a home, Christmas may not be the celebration everyone else is contemplating.

The Salvation Army, Samaritans, and food banks are busier than usual. I have said to my daughter I would rather have second hand books from Tesco’s because I know the money will be given to charity. I may not be able to do much, but at least there is something I can do.

Anyway, there is always something you can do, even if money is tight. It costs nothing more than a cup of coffee, and food to bring a smile to someone’s face.
