Season's Greetings from Liz Brent

poinsettia.jpgThis time of year, we are reminded of the importance of friends and family.  There is fun in shopping, seeing all the decorations and thinking of family traditions.  I have learned that parades are also a part of the holiday season in Alabama.  What a great way to celebrate the holidays!  The picture below is the winner of the 2008 Holiday Card Contest by Sarah S. of Brownie Troop 9161 in Millbrook.    We appreciate all of the creative entries we received.
I wanted to take the opportunity this holiday season to thank you for what you do for the girls of southern Alabama.  The gift of time and attention to girls is more valuable than the material things you might give, and the importance of spending your time to have a positive influence on others is so precious to those whose lives you touch.
I spoke with a Brownie leader who has her troop go caroling for the elderly and then pass out Christmas gifts.  She said this is something the Brownies enjoy, and I know those who are fortunate recipients of that love also soak it up.   What a wonderful gift during this season of giving.  I trust that many of those girls will treasure that event for the rest of their lives.  Sentiment and happy memories of traditions are part of what makes this season of giving so wonderful.
My holiday wish is that each of you has a wonderful season of giving, family and friends.  Best wishes for 2009!
Happy Holidays,
Elizabeth M. Brent, PhD.
