The Christmas Spirit

on 12/23/2012

It’s almost Christmas.  I love the spirit of giving that is in the air.  I  love the hustle and bustle in the stores and the energy spent trying to find that perfect gift for  the person I love.  I relish in the time spent with family and friends.  I  always look forward to the bounty of food that will be available. I am always excited to watch others open their presents and see their joyful expressions.    This is  definitely  my favorite holiday and it seems to last all month long.    Upon reflection today I thought about this holiday and what it means to me.   Christmas to me is time to cherish your friends, family and realize  just how blessed your really are.   Remember that people matter, not things, it’s the thoughts that count not the money or how much you spend.  I always get a renewed hope in humanity when I see people coming together to help one another, or to do multiple acts of  kindness.  As a child I always wished that  the Christmas spirit lasted all year long.  This year for myself I hope to keep that spirit alive all year long.  I won’t  get caught up in the day to day duties  of life but  instead keep  the spirit of love and generosity  in my heart so that I may be more helpful, more thoughtful.  I encourage all of you to keep this spirit alive all year long as well.  Merry Christmas Everyone!!!

This is my STAY POSITIVE thought for this week. ~ Sara
