Earlier this month I was struggling! I was working hours that were beyond difficult. I made it to 2 days before Christmas and I have survived so far. 🙂 I have seen the nicer side of people. I have also seen the bad side of people, but I try to see the positive. (Last night a lady had a horrific fit on me at work and I just had to be very blase’ about the whole thing and treat her like a petulant child having a fit.) I have seen people help each other. I have seen some help people in dire straits. I have had people in stores help me find things and do it cheerfully. I have had friends come out of the woodwork and just be so sweet and special that it made my heart sing.
This is the best Christmas I have had in years. Yes, I do still miss several people. Yes, I have lost many loved ones along the way. But I have gained many through the year as well. Some of the people I have lost were through death and some were due to the fact that they just needed to be out of my life. To those of my friends and family who are reading this blog, I love you and appreciate you and my heart is overflowing because of your care and kindness. Thank you.
For the people who follow my blog, thank you. You also bring something to my heart. You don’t know me and yet you take time from your lives to come here. Thank you. It means more than you know.
I hope everyone has a merry Christmas. I hope if you don’t know the reason for the season that you learn more about it. Jesus is truly amazing and I am blessed because of all He has done for me.
