I was going to write a blog today, but truthfully this is one of those very rare times when I just have nothing to say...

So I thought really hard about what Christmas is to me anymore.

It's still first and foremost about the birth of Jesus... to me. I know some have other beliefs,and that is fine, for you. I respect those beliefs, they are just different than mine.

It's about my grandchildren opening gifts and the giddy excitment in the ones who still believe in Santa.
It's about the ones who have outgrown that belief and the knowing look from them that I cared enough to get them just what they wanted and complete appreciation and love. So much love it melts my heart.
It's also hearing her say that Christmas is so much more about family and time together than gifts. That's my girl...
It's about getting to spend the day with my daughter and family. Grand children with laughter, arguing (cause I really believe the youngest 2 hate each other) singing,and playing with the new gifts. The wonderful smells of dinner, my daughter worrying if everything is going to turn out okay, and even clean up and doing the dishes together.

It's about time with wonderful friends that you couldn't imagine not having in your life, and hoping their Christmas is filled with love.

It's about knowing there are so many loved ones getting to come home this year from a hell that we can not honestly imagine.
It's shedding tears for those who gave their lives and came back only for their funerals, and for the ones they left behind.
It's hoping the ones who aren't coming home... Yet, will be safe and warm. and know how much they are appreciated, prayed for and loved back home.

It's about hoping that the homeless will have a warm place to sleep and a good meal to keep them nourished, not just at Christmas but all through the year. And a home soon.

It's about the elderly who have no one to share their holiday with. God bless them one and all and keep their hearts filled with love and not dispair.

It's about the children who are abused, I wish for a very bright light at the end of that tunnel for them and that it comes soon.

It's about the sick and injured, I wish I could take away their pain and illness. That is one of my top prayers, for them to not hurt or be sick. Especially the children. They should be running and playing, full of laughter. That's what children are meant to do. Just be children.

It's about giving of myself to others who need the help, wanting nothing in return. Although it always fills my heart with gladness and peace.

It's about helping when and where I can, even if it's just a few dollars to a local food bank hoping others will get to share family dinners together,and the children who depend on meals at school will be fed throughout the holiday season.

To me, Christmas is about Jesus. It's about family and loved ones. It's about sharing, and caring with,and for, those in need, be they someone we already know or total strangers we will never meet.

To all, I wish you a Wonderful, Merry Christmas. Or a Very Happy Holiday of your belief! Be safe, be warm, be filled with love, everyday not just throughout the holidays.
