Anticipation and Love....

It never really matters what faith you have or where your "faith" path takes you it just seems that this time of year creates a certain magic that engulfs all of us one way or another.  Age just changes the type of magic you want to feel and look for. 

 As a child we were all a flutter with the story and visit of a rather large elf bearing gifts....and Santa became a big part of our lives without us even realizing it.  Even though it was only for a short time we found ourselves a wee bit nicer and more aware of the needs of others.  For many of us we try to continue that on a regular basis but even at the best times our faith can falter a bit.  Christmas is that proverbial shot in the arm we all need.  The smiles, sounds and warm feelings inside each of us at this time of year is the best medicine we can give ourselves and to others.

By reaching out with some good cheer you will touch a life that truly needs that kind word or smile.  Though your table may be full there are many that do without,  and this time of year it is important that we remember those that could use that smile and extra bit of
cheer...

As my Christmas Day approaches I am often reminded of how precious our life truly is and begin to grasp and hold onto the simplest bits and pieces of my days.  The smiles from my grandkids, the twinkle in Dan's eyes and the love that is exchanged between my daughter and her husband....never take any moment for granted because each and everyone of these moments is a miracle in itself and is part of the Christmas Magic that we all look forward to not realizing it is with us everyday!  

Merry Christmas Everyone and May the Joys of the Season Be with You Always!
