Ho-ho-ho, Internet-Land! It’s Christmas Eve ALREADY! I will confess, this year it has come MUCH too fast. I am in no way ready for the holiday. With long working hours, I have not had time to prepare and must now brave the stores on Christmas Eve day. I am determined, however, to make it into a glorious adventure! I think I know what I want to do, and it will not involve any “you waited too long, so now they’re all gone” items. I will not be in a hurry, so can take my time this late morning and early afternoon to just enjoy the journey. Then tonight, I will pop in one in of our classic Christmas flicks, make a couple pies, wrap some gifts, and thoroughly enjoy the evening.
So, to all of you out there who may be facing the same dilemma ~ here it is ~ embrace your day. Don’t make yourself miserable wishing it is something other than what it is. Do what you can with what you have, and let your own situation be enough. If this year is one of those times when you think there just “isn’t anything to give,” think again. You have lots of value in yourself! Literally, take out some sheets of paper and write your loved ones a letter, telling them how much they mean to you and why. Fill your note with love and thankfulness, making your words into a gift that will be treasured always. One of my most precious possessions is the last birthday card my dad sent to me before he passed away. It’s not the card itself, but the fact that he picked it out with his crazy sense of humor and sent it to me.
This Christmas, know that you are special; you are important; and God absolutely LOVES YOU! You are valuable to Him and to others. This Christmas, just share yourself!
Another gown awaits on my facebook page as well! Happy, Happy Christmas!
