For many of us Christmas is a mix of emotions, it is bitter sweet. Many of us miss the ones we love and still want to participate as much as we can. For me, it all comes down to making a decision. Each year I face it and I make a decision. No one in my home wants any thing to do with Christmas this year. I have grandchildren that need some knd of hope in their life. I won’t get to see them on Christmas, and still I want them to experience hope. So not matter how sad I am and how alone I feel. I will find a way to give them a smile and somehow a little something magical. Why? Because I think it’s the right thing to do.
My neighbor who has been alone for 15 years, needs a little extra love and hope. For me, now is an easy time to step up and show others that they are loved and valued, even if they live alone, even if they have no family, even if they feel worthless, we can love their spirit unconditionaly. So I am going to dig deep, set my personal tears aside and remind others that they are not really alone. People think about them, sing for them, pray for them and wish them well every single day.
You are loved, by someone.
