You didn’t think I would forget to write this year huh?;-)

Merry Christmas family!
Right now, I am in my crib listening to Nat King Cole sing me Christmas carols. I feel blessed to be able to spend this Christmas in a warm home and reflect on the things that really mean something to me. After going, going, going this is like the best present in the world for me!

I know how distorted Christmas can get. Sometimes it seems like everyone is in it for all the wrong reasons. Every channel on TV is buy, buy, buy, sell, sell, sell! And it gets very frustrating. We wonder, has everyone lost the meaning?
In some ways maybe we have, and that’s why so many of us feel lost during Christmas. Maybe that’s why we feel purposeless, or just bored and down.
But although Christmas has become “commercialized”, there are certain things about Christmas that will never die.

One of them being, the birth of greatness. No matter what you believe in, spiritually or religiously, that greatness means you and me! The day we were born represents a miracle. We represent that anything is possible. We are the culmination of love. We are everything embodied in flesh and blood. So when they talk about Christmas being the birth of Christ, it also symbolized the birth of you and I and the way that we can give people joy. That is what the celebration is about. Everything we are is amazing! Everything we can be is limitless!

The other thing that will never die no matter how commercialized Christmas becomes is . LOVE
For real, the whole world revolves around it. We all need someone to love us, someone that says no matter what, I am here for you, I will love you through your mistakes and walk with you on this journey you are traveling. Love is the real reason for Christmas. To show love to everyone you meet. Give someone that gift once a day. Even when Christmas is long gone ..It’s like, this time of year reminds us of the goodness that is in the world, the purity that is within us, the compassion that we have to offer.
The joy we can give, with a smile, a hug, the words, “I love you”. The meaning of the little things that can be taken for granted on a regular basis.

So, don’t be disappointed in Christmas. Use it to face the hate that surrounds us and combat it with love. If you see something happening in your family, in your life, on the street, anywhere around you that makes you sad, or makes you feel hurt, use Christmas as a time to talk about it. Maybe tell someone that you love them and you’ve noticed their sadness and as someone who cares you just want to be able to talk or listen. Sometimes the sadness comes from years of no one listening, or even caring to ask. Not that we can solve all problems, but if we talk more, we can understand each other more, ya know? We just get mad and never say anything because we’re too angry to address our feelings.
I think maybe that’s the lost art of Christmas time CARING!
Not about silly things we can buy at the store. But about what’s in each other’s hearts. If we talk more, we can judge less.
There are so many suffering, so many that don’t even have a family to visit, let alone talk to. There are so many who are sick and can’t afford a hospital let alone a gift for their children. There are so many things going on in the world and with all of us as well. Lets make Christmas a time to remember at least one thing we have to be thankful for, to be happy about, to celebrate. ONE thing. Even something as simple as laughter or a smile.
That one thing can put everything into perspective.

We are the greatest creation in the universe and with our CARING we are the greatest gift to each other.

Let’s live in the spirit of goodness and feel the power of love all year long.

Happy Holidays my family.
I wish you all the love in the world.
