The Christmas Season is upon us, and there is joy in the air. There’s something special about this holiday season. Perhaps it’s because Christmas is about hope, and a brighter future. Christmas is a time where we extend a helping hand to others and gather together as a family. It’s a time when children gaze in amazement at the lights and festivities and are oblivious to anything that is wrong in the world. It’s a time to forget the challenges of the past year and to be grateful for what we have today. Hugs feel a little more special this year because we’ve had so few. We are connecting with those we love via video and zoom just to say hello because 2020 taught us never to take the lives of those we love for granted.
Joy is in the air, and maybe that is because we need more joy this year. It’s part of who we are, it’s our nature to bounce back and to find joy in the moment. We wish everyone a joyous Holiday Season filled with love, laughter, hope and joy.
Something to Think About
No one and nothing, including Covid, can rob you of your joy unless you allow it.
It’s time to kick back, relax, and enjoy your family time.
