It seems like this time of year comes and goes and only a few people make real change in their lives.
For most people the holidays are about what can I get? Even kids are very selfish not all kids but most.
We stopped reading the story about god sending his one and only son into the world so that we might have redemption. We are a generation of selfless and ruthless human beings . Granted someone always shows me what humans are capable of. When did Christmas become all about gifts . If we started giving before getting it would change the world. I do not have much to give but I will give you all that I have. Let me love you this holiday season without thinking about how much it is going to cost. Let me show you what a true friend is. This holiday we are struggling with the economy and our over spending on our credit cards .
For years , we spent and spent and now we are paying for it. Now we do not know what to do. Maybe we can spend less this holiday season and spend more in the way of our time with the people who truly care about us. On Jan 1, let us make real resolutions to spend less and spend more time taking care of other people who have less than us. I like to make a list what I can do to brighten someone day even if it is just a cup of coffee . A good idea is when you are waiting in line and your feeling impatient take the time to ask someone how they are doing. Show them that you care. Maybe they will get that only nice thing for Christmas.
