December 28th -The Fourth Day of Christmas

Peace on earth will come to stay, When we live Christmas every day.

Helen Steiner Rice

I believe that if we want every day to be like Christmas, meaning the positive feelings and attitudes are brought forth, then I think that it is up to us.  We have the choice to keep the positive thoughts going. 

To live each day forward like it is Christmas would be to keep alive the spirit of of peace on earth, good will to others, giving, being generous, being kind, being loving, making time, visiting, family and friends on a daily basis.  

It’s so easy to fall into the daily grind where all we think about is either stressful, depressing, or resentful and unhappy.  The news some days is enough to turn any one off.

It’s our choice, it is up to each of us just how our day will be.  I’m going to try and make every day like Christmas.  Every day may not be a good one but there is something good to be found in every day !

People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
