It's Xmas Time Again!
It is Xmas time and so many beautiful lights and places to go and enjoy the festive season or get you into the Xmas spirit. I have always found Xmas to be both a happy and sad time.
There are so many people who are 'down on their luck', lost jobs, lost homes, and just so much. My heart hurts when I see this. I am saddened that in a country such as ours and our neighbors in the USA that we can't or won't take better care of those in need. (Seniors, homeless, hungry and on welfare or disability)
It is this time of year that many step up to the plate and try to help so everyone has a Xmas to remember. We give to the food banks and we give to the kettles and the bins in the stores for toys and gifts for the children. We also have a tendency to judge or assume and expect, when really, we don't honestly know why or how this person or family came to this place in their lives.
"By the Grace of God, there go I" is something we should all tuck into our hearts because it could so easily be. One day everything is going along as planned and the next day a natural disaster or accidental fire has destroyed your home and all your possessions. Yes, it can happen.
My wish this Xmas season and time of giving is for each of us to reach deep into our pockets and help just one person or family with a gift of sharing. There is something that happens in your heart when you give to help another in need. And triple that when a child is in the picture. Be that 'Secret Santa' if you can. There is still time.
And with that I wish you all one more time a very happy holiday with family and friends and a wish for all your dreams to evolve in 2018. Set your goals, make your plan, take action and follow your plan. Never give up on your dreams. Not ever. I almost did that this past 4 months but I pulled up my big girl panties and kept on going. If I can, you can! Actually we all can. And that my friends is taking the "t" out of Can't!!
Welcome to all our new members joining us right now! You will be well prepared to start 2018 off on the right foot starting now. Smart!
Merry Xmas and the best new year ever for each of you!!!
