Holiday Thoughts

Nativity-29Here are some thoughts I wanted to share with my readers as we approach Christmas and the New Year:

It’s okay if your children don’t get everything on their wish list.  It’s important for them to learn that, in life, we don’t always get everything we want.

Giving really is more important than receiving.  Enjoy the thrill of watching someone open a gift you picked out just for them.

It’s okay to say Happy Holidays, or Merry Christmas, or Happy Hanukkah.  Every situation and circumstance is different, and we don’t live in a one-size-fits-all world.

No matter what you are celebrating this time of year, don’t forget the reason for the season.

Enjoy every minute you spend with your family this holiday season.  You really don’t know where you will be next year.

Say a prayer for those who aren’t able to be with their own family at this time because they are risking their lives by serving us and our country – police officers, firefighters, and our military.

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and Happy New Year!
