I remember an old song that had the line "Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year". I can't remember who sung the song but to many Christmas is the worst time of the year.

Advertisers and traditions say this is a time for sharing and being with your family. For great food, strong drink, egg nog, chestnuts roasting on a open fire (Thank U Nat King Cole and others) but what if you don't have any of that? What if you have nothing but the clothes on your back? What if this time of year reminds you of past tragedies and Christmas brings back memories you soon rather forget?

How can we help others this Christmas season and make it wonderful in a way that they will remember?  I think it depends on what they are really needing at this moment in time. I believe it is love, companionship, service and inspiration. I believe they want to count as being important, more important than Christmas gifts under the tree, more than carolers outside their doors or windows, more than silver and gold.

Who are these people? They are you, me, the homeless, the less fortunate, the rich and famous. Whoever has a heart and a conscious.

Plz make this Christmas brighter for those who are in shelters, on the streets, in prisons, in hospitals, nursing homes, wherever holiday cheer is needed, try to be there for someone, for somebody.

This Christmas will be one of my best Christmas's ever. My family with our church will be ringing in spiritual holiday or holy day cheer to those who are in one of our local shelters. Spending Christmas with those who are homeless warms my heart and soul cause I get to share the Love of God and the love of Humanity with the less fortunate. Even though my plate may be full, it's not full enough when a heart is in need.

Have a blessed and safe, healthy and happy Christmas. Be bless this coming New Year.  Light a candle for those who care, who have no one and those who have preceded us to a new horizon. Thank U.

Now that 2008 Thanksgiving is behind us, what do we do for the present and the future in front of us. Let's make each day count as if it's our last. No one knows the day or hour when they will take their last breath.  Live to the fullest not letting our lives and time be in vain.

Let's be grateful for each moment that counts. Let's do something wonderful for ourselves, too. It's not all about everyone else,  forgetting Self in hand. If you don't take care of you, who will.

Be blessed until next time,

JanMaria

Thanksgiving. A time for food, fun, family & friends. That's all good and wonderful. I love the 4 F's. But what about the spiritual side of Thanksgiving?

Isn't Thanksgiving just as spiritual for some as physical for many?

What are we grateful for? What are we thankful for especially since we are going into a new year with a new President and possibily a new set of rules and changes in lifestyle and living?

Yes, it's time for change but that change must first began in us as individuals.

What does thanks have to do with change, everything. Because I believe if you are not in an attitude of gratitude, then what happens to you because of your positive or negative state of mind will make the difference in the things that will happen to you period.

Just sharing my thoughts.  Have a great Thanksgiving Holiday.

Even though the Month of October is over, that does not mean that Domestic Violence and Breast Cancer is over. Please continue to support these social causes. The majority are women who are sometimes affected by both. How do we cure both of these traumas to so many lives?  We have to pull together like an unbroken chain to not only support them but also to be an example for change.

Even though I never suffered breast cancer I suffered Domestic Violence and Child Abuse, I survived. We all can survive whatever happens to us if we have the right cure, the right frame of mind and the right support.

Thank You.
