If you haven’t been living under a rock the last few months, then you were well aware that the Mayans predicted Dec. 21 of this year to mark the end of civilization. Being that this is Dec. 25, I think it’s safe to say that the Mayans got it wrong. They weren’t the only ones. Did you know that there have been MANY other apocalyptic predictions that have obviously also not come true, so why did we seem to take this one more seriously? I’m not sure why but I am quite grateful that we surpassed another expiration date.
I think this Christmas we should feel doubly blessed to have everything that we have.
If you are warm, then you have shelter from the cold, something that not all of us are blessed with.
If you have a hangover today, then you most likely spent Christmas Eve in the company of friends and/or family.
If your belly hurts from laughing, there is enough joy in your life that it spills over at times.
If you need to undo your pants at the dinner table, then you have plenty of food to eat and share with those who mean the most to you.
If your floor is littered with wrapping paper and boxes today, then you were fortunate enough to have the means to buy those gifts.
And if your heart is full, then you are blessed with people who love you.
I want to wish all of my friends and followers the best holiday season ever and to remind you that the good feelings the holidays bring CAN be carried with you all throughout the year and it starts with gratitude.
I am grateful for each and every one of you.
