two more daYs!
as christmas is only two days away i have been thinking lately about what it truly means. for kids we know they are all excited about the gifts. what is it for us adults? is it shopping for the presents, baking with the kids/grandkids, wrapping presents, addressing christmas cards or spending time with family and friends. as i thought of all these things i realized that this christmas is probably gonna be a bit different for everyone this year. there have been a lot of changes in the world this year, a lot of changes in our lives. as i have taken the time out to explain to my children that christmas will be different i also tell them it will be more memorable. the time with them is more precious to me than gold. time where we can be together eNjoYing each other and making new memories. you may not be able to give them the world but, the world is theirs for the taking. does christmas need to be one time a year? think about it...why is it that we can't share this time always. that we can't be in this cheerful mood, share our bake goods with our friends and neighbors or show love to mankind. i hope this year you take the extra time to tell those you love them, that you appreciate them and that without them, your life just wouldn't be the same. a birth of a child brought us this special holiday to eNjoY. keep that love in your heart, keep the spirit in your soul and the smile always on your face. remember there is always someone out there who has it worse than you. haPpY hoLidaYs to you and yours. may 2009 bring a year full of new and exciting memories! much love always, connie
