Please remember to stop and take the time to tell your family and friends you love them.
Stop making the season about the gift(s) and make it about family and friends.
And keep in mind there are a lot of people out there who do not enjoy the holiday season because they have lost someone close to them, they don't have family or a special someone in their life to share this time with or there was some sort of tragic moment in their lives.
We as the human race are "lost" and have been for a long time. Let's stop feeding the negative in the World. And stop waiting for a tragedy to finally realize that there is a huge problem out there.
Maybe 2013 can be about compassion, caring, loving . . .
Help a stranger in need, tell a family member you love them, tell someone they matter, donate to a cause, adopt a shelter animal, visit a nursing home, simply give someone a smile . . .
Let's stop judging each other and start loving each other.
I'll start . . . YOU Matter to me!
From our house to yours, we wish everyone a Very Merry Christmas and an even Happier, Healthier New Year.
