I just wrote and deleted an entire post. It’s been that kind of week. This past weekend my family was reminded, in a very painful way, what Christmas is truly about. While I am certainly not feeling the Christmas spirit- it has reminded me about something very important. I wanted to share it with all of you, before Santa makes his appearance. So here it is, straight from the great Dr. Seuss himself:
This year, when you’re done opening all the packages, remember the real reason you celebrate. It’s not about the presents, it’s not about the food and drink. Take a look around your tree. The people you see are the real gift. Christmas is all about the love you have for each other; and celebrating the love that God has for you. I will just finish this off with a very heartfelt Merry Christmas from our family to yours!
