Christmas every day!

Christmas is my absolute, favorite holiday.  The sights, the sounds, the magic of it all.  Sure, throughout December I am possessed with that spirit more than any other time of the year, because we decorate, and put up the tree, and wrap up the gifts that we give to one another in extra-special paper. 

But, to me, Christmas is a feeling that I have within my heart and soul the whole year through. 

Giving:  There is never a good or bad time to give.  To ourselves or to others.  Not just gifts that are wrapped up with a fancy bow.  But giving of the gifts of our time, our talents, our service, our appreciation.  Those are worthy gifts the whole year through.

Receiving:  Never a best time throughout the year to receive either.  Any time that we are awake, alert, aware and breathing, we should be open to receiving, gifts, presence, and lessons that the Universe has to offer to us.

Gratitude:  Don’t ever hold back in letting others how much you appreciate what they bring to your life.  We all need to hear it as much as we need to say it, if not more.  Be grateful for what you have before you, in this moment, because in another moment, it could be gone.  Thank God for the beauty of this earth, the priviledges and freedoms that you possess, the breath in your lungs.  Say thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!!!

Forgive:  Do not hold onto old wrongs and misdeeds; for they create a hole and blackness within our own souls that keeps us stuck, creates misery, and doesn’t allow us to truly appreciate what we do have in our lives.  Forgive one another.  Move on.  Leave the troubles behind and leave the sunshine on your path ahead. 

And, by all means my friends, LOVE.  Love with your heart, your soul, your mind, your spirit…….. please don’t hold it back; give it freely, receive it freely, open that heart of y0urs with as much gusto as you can stir up.  Love is contagious, you know.  If you have it, and try really hard, you can make someone else lovesick.  No shots needed to prevent that one.  Give it, get it, open up and help others to learn to open up also.  Love is in short supply in our world at times, but just think how much better and brighter we can make this world by sharing that love that could burst right through our skin sometimes………..

Call that friend.  Leave that note.  Buy that flower.  Visit that sick person.  Make plans.  Be. Do.  Become.

And, by all means, on this day, Christmas Day, and every day throughout the year,

LOVE………………………………………….

 

Don’t get so busy that you miss
Giving just a little kiss
To the ones you love
Don’t even wait a little while
To give them a little smile
A little is enough how many people are crying
People are dying…
How many people are asking for love don’t save it all for christmas day
Find a way
To give a little love everyday
Don’t save it all for christmas day
Find your way
Cause holidays have come and gone
But love lives on
If you give on
Love… how could you wait another minute
A hug is warmer when you’re in it
And baby that’s a fact
And saying “i love you’s” always better
Seasons, reasons, they don’t matter
So don’t hold back
How many people in this world
So needful in this world
How many people are praying for love don’t save it all for christmas day
Find a way
To give a little love everyday
Don’t save it all for christmas day
Find your way
Cause holidays have come and gone
But love lives on
If you give on
Love… let all the children know
Everywhere that they go
Their whole life long
Let them know love don’t save it all for christmas day
Find a way
To give a little love everyday
Don’t save it all for christmas day
Find your way
Cause holidays have come and gone
But love lives on
If you give on
Love…
Love…
