The holiday season: A time to be amazed and gratefulDecember 20, 2015
I love the holiday season! I feel an awakening with its wonderment. The spirit of giving and family togetherness makes my heart sing. The enjoyment of gift giving fits the times. Looking for the perfect present for those we love and feeling the excitement when we finally find it! Then, tucking it away until the moment we can finally present it to those we care for and feeling joy and warmth within ourselves. There are so many lessons of the holidays.
Lessons of the holidays
It is a time to teach our children and grandchildren that giving a gift is more important than getting a gift. It is called generosity of spirit!
I live in downtown Chicago. I am surrounded by the beauty of tree-lined streets lit with white lights, all aglow and sparkling like twinkling stars. People young and old walk arm-in-arm with friends and family, rushing down the street, laughing with brightly colored packages filled with loving gifts. The ringing bells of the Salvation Army folks, the Santas and the apartment building’s decorated lobbies add to my wonderment. I am a package of happiness during the holiday season.
I love the religious part of the holidays. Christmas and Hanukkah, the beautiful wreaths on the front doors, church bells ringing, Christmas trees and Menorahs lit in homes across the world, decorated by family members sharing traditions of their faith with their families. By now you can sense that the holidays are my happiest time of the year! So happy that I chose to be married on December 22!
And so at this time, I want to wish the Honey Good community of women and their families a very happy holiday season! I appreciate each and every one of you! And, I want to end this blog with this: may your days over this holiday be merry and bright!
