This much I know about the holidays....."If you can't be with the one you love.....love the one you are with."
Most of us miss someone at the holidays...it could be a mom, a dad, a brother, a sister, a best friend, a son, a daughter, a beloved pet and the list goes on.
But I believe it is the wise person who embraces the above verse from a favorite song of long ago....I have known people..who were so caught up in their "missing" that they couldn't see the people who loved them....right before their eyes. They lamented about all their losses..without realizing how much they really had. I, personally, have had a few holidays like these myself, children absent for one reason or another, brothers gone, and virtually no family left through either death or absence...but no more. I tell you...for quite sometime now I have embraced the holidays with all the joy God has intended us to have....and loved every minute of them....who knows...this one could be my last one.
Don't know if you agree with this but during the holidays when so many people are so very lonely....I just wish they could see the joy they are missing and turn to their neighbor and wish them the very merriest of holidays...and let them know how much they are loved as one human to another.
Just me getting this off my chest today.
Love from here....
p.s. no pics today.....just commentary.... LOL LOL
