Backstory – Christmas Wish
Every year along with the traditional Christmas decorations, I pull out hand-made Christmas items given to me over the years. A red and green afghan . . . a holly candle . . . a card, so beautiful that I framed it . . . A CD of Polish Christmas carols. That got me thinking about the skills people use to express their love. And that inspired this wish, sent to you sincerely this year.
Consider This Show – Christmas Wish
As the Christmas holiday season approaches, I have a special wish for you. May your days be spent making others feel good and may you receive in kind.
May you have a special Christmas project that puts to work one of the many gifts that have been conferred on you.
What is it that you do well? Knit . . . sew . . . play the piano or the tuba . . . fix things . . . raise money . . . talk comfortably with strangers . . . share your ideas through words, spoken or written.
Whatever your gift in life, may you have the opportunity to use it, to make the world a better place – in a large way, or a very small one. It all counts.
When you get home from shopping, may you have a warm welcome – from family, spouse, partner or a furry friend who loves you.
May you have an invitation to share a Christmas meal with others. And if you have no one, may you volunteer to work the holiday so someone with a family can spend the day home with them.
May you spread your love through your smile and your kindness and patience during this hectic Christmas season.
And when all is said and done, may you feel the true spirit of Christmas – Peace on earth . . . or at least in your personal world . . . good will to men, and women too.
