It’s Christmas eve and you are frantically wrapping those last minute gifts and thinking about the million and one things you need to get done for tomorrow’s feast.
Take a deep breath and count to ten.
Now I want you to take a step back and look at the bigger picture. Look beyond the presents, Christmas ham, caroling and eggnog. What makes Christmas truly special for you?
What I find truly magical about Christmas is how it transforms people to be more caring, selfless, and have more hope for the new year that is about to arrive.
In all honesty I don’t much care for the gift giving side of things. I think it creates too much pressure and stress than is necessary. For me it is the traditions that I get to share with my family that is more fulfilling.
Baking cookies and making the candied orange peel with mom.
Writing Christmas cards and letters to send to friends.
Spending time with family.
Being thankful for the roof over my head, the food in my belly, and the good health of those I care about.
Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas!
