The light’s incandescent glow reaches out across the room. There it finds bright grinning faces of those who are hearts are smiling. A joyous evening where we concern ourselves only with wonderful conversation to be had. With laughter and stories that drift through the air, a warm night filled with love is really want I look forward to during the Christmas time of year.
In the days we get lost in food and gifts, we should focus on what this season can actually give us, a warmth of spirit. It’s the season of giving because of the joy we get when someone opens a gift, and for a split second, you know that it’s exactly what they wanted and it warms your heart. As I get older, it’s these memories that I carry with me into the future. Each gift I have received is a treasure, but the memories I make with the gifts are what matter.
I love the smiles and pleasant conversations I can have with people, those by far are more exciting to me than most gifts in this world. Maybe it’s because I am blessed that I have this point of view, but to be honest, I’m okay with that.
This Christmas lets give something that only we can give, the gift of ourselves. Be aware and be present as your present. We might be able to share the spark of life with one another and ignite a smile in our hearts. To give of ourselves might seem cheesy but that’s what we remember down the line, memories made in the sands of time.
I hope you all have a great and fantastic holiday season, filled with love, joy, and smiles.
