December the first
The hustle and bustle of Christmas really begins the day after
Thanksgiving but steps up a notch when December 1st.
This year, gifts are going to be minimum.
Something to be used for spending time together.
The words of the Grinch come to mind:
"IT CAME WITHOUT RIBBONS, IT CAME WITHOUT TAGS
IT CAME WITHOUT PACKAGES, BOXES OR BOWS."
THEN THE GRINCH THOUGHT OF SOMETHING HE
"MAYBE CHRISTMAS," HE THOUGHT,
"DOESN'T COME FROM A STORE.
MAYBE CHRISTMAS, PERHAPS MEANS A LITTLE BIT MORE."
That old Grinch, he became a smart lil guy by the last page.
So as we all settle in to the pressures of gift giving and how will
we be able to see everyone we love and want to spend time with,
lets not loose sight of the true meaning of Christmas.
Let forgiveness be one of your gifts to someone who may need it.
Put the pain of a hurt aside for good and move forward.
Gift yourself with a healthier life and putting negative thoughts
away. Give yourself the gift of finding your own true happiness
even if it doesn't come right away,
"fake it till you make it"
