We celebrate Christmakah in our family as we are a diverse mixture of religions. No matter how or what we celebrate, the feelings surrounding the celebration are what’s important.
I hope everyone had a wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving… and now let the gifting begin! ‘Tis the season! Everyone running around in a frenzy, looking for the best and biggest gifts….spending money we don’t have to impress people we don’t need to impress. Let us not forget the gifts of love, peace and compassion. These are the gifts that make our world a better place.
I know, I know…we’ve heard it all before…feed the hungry, shelter the homeless, bring joy to the joyless, care for our elderly. But wouldn’t it be spectacular if we actually did these things? If we could really turn these negatives into positives? If there were no more homeless or hungry people in this wonderful world of ours? No more pain or illness? We can’t change the world…but we can change ourselves. We can change how we think and, eventually, it WILL change the world. One person at a time, thinking positive, can make a difference. Acts of kindness, a simple smile…these are the things that make a difference. These are the things that CAN change the world for everyone. Let’s let the world know we care…about the environment, the people, the homeless, the starving., the abandoned children, the elderly. We are all one! This is the best gift we can give ourselves and our loved ones! If we don’t change our world…we won’t have a world worth living in. We won’t have a world for our children’s children or grandchildren’s children. Our future depends on what we do today. Let’s make it a future of love and peace and compassion. Let’s give back to Mother Earth what she has so lovingly given us.
