DDIl#4 and our little Precious One

Christmas is a time of joy,
A time for love and cheer,
A time for making memories,
To last throughout the year.

December 3rd = share the love

Unless we use Christms as an occasion to share our blessings, all the snow in Alaska won’t make it white.

Bing Crosby

Every Christmas tradition we have:  Santa, evergreens, yule logs, stars advents, presents, stockings - all have their own uniques story of how they came to be and where they came from.  Our modern Christmas is a melting pot of cultural references. It’s the reason for the season and Presence over Presents for me.  We all feel happier and kinder this time of year, bu we should feel this way all year.  We should be sharing our love, time, food, help and companionship all year round.  

The fact is there are people that don’t get that migical warm Chistamas I choose.  There are some who carry silent burdens through these weeks.  They are people who are alone, cold, sad, unwell and they are are all around us. Yet there are many ways to share Christmas love, we shouldn’t forget those that need our love.   We could shovel someones driveway, bring them firewood, share our home baking, or buy someone a little table top tree.  Little things that could make a big difference in their lives.

Christmas is a necessity.  There has to be at least one day of the year to remind us that we’re here for something else besides our selves.

So true it can be a hard time for some, but so true also we can make it brighter by the kind gestures that you mentioned!



it can be a difficult time of the year for sure. my mom and daughter are mourning the loss of loved ones. and i am too. first time in my life my dad won't be here to celebrate. it's nice when civility and kindness are front and center at this time of year. little gestures mean alot.

I get so carried away by Christmas - that sometimes I don't think about that not everyone celebrates it like I do - thanks for reminding me to pray for them.

Thanks for this reminder! As Sean pointed out in a recent column, not everyone is able to muster the 'merry.' Speaking for myself, I need to be more aware of the not-so-obvious signals.

Love you girl!

You just had to mention Bing. LOL He is my favorite singer at Christmas time. And YES Christmas is a magical time. It does bring us closer and for many causes more charity and thoughts of others less fortunate. A great time of the year.
Love you lady and we enjoy all your entries.
Sherry & jack (she beat me here this time!)
