Preparing for the holidays is an exciting time. The magic fills the air and stirs the heart. Families gather and make memories together. Children can hardly sleep at night, dreaming of each new magical day to come. So what makes your holiday special? Is it the special foods prepared, the special gatherings to wish each other the happiest of seasons, the special preparations we make around our homes to make them festive for the occasion? Maybe it’s the people we choose to fill our lives with or those who choose us. The ones we know and love so dear, but sometimes, and maybe more importantly, it’s the people we’ve never met before who for maybe a brief moment, our paths crossed and we were able to make a difference in the life of another…knowingly or unknowingly. Is that the magic of the season?
As the season marches on with the hustle and bustle of the shopping frenzy, take a moment to remember why each of us celebrates the glorious holiday. Home is where your heart is, and as all families are not able to gather together, remember those friends, family members and especially those we don’t know that need your positive thoughts during this holiday season. This would be a great time for some random acts of kindness. Since home is where the heart is, let your heart be full this holiday season!
