That Special Time Of The Year
For Christmas is a time to celebrate faith and family. Love your friends and family with your entire being, for they are the most important part of your life. Count your blessings and remember to practice being patient and gentle as you live in these moments.
The holiday season is upon us. It is often a time of uplifted spirits, good times, and closeness to those people who are most important to us. The holiday season can bring with it stress that is not found during other times of the year. The financial pressures of shopping and affording gifts are common to just about all of us. Set a budget for yourself and remember you give from the heart SOMETHING THAT CAN'T BE BOUGHT and not so much from your pocket. Give to those you love; your time, a listening ear, a heart-to-heart conversation, and a warm loving embrace.
The holidays can be impactful for a variety of reasons, and it's sometimes up to us to make it the best time of the year that it can be. Please remember to reach out and help those less fortunate than you and those that are enduring hardships during this time, those that have lost a loved one, homeless, children that are living in the orphanage, single and without children, and those that have family who are simply apart from them in different parts of the world. Once again the time is here to "deck the halls" in joyful celebration, by shedding love and light on others.
Make this Holiday season one of Celebration and Joy as you reflect and remember who you are and just how blessed you are to be alive and have a loving and supportive family, good friends and colleagues. Be good to yourself, be good to and for each other, and enjoy the time and blessings that we've received during the year AND NOT JUST ON THIS DAY. Have a Very Merry Christmas!
