Close your eyes for a moment and think about what you love about the holidays. Go ahead. I’ll wait…
What I love is spending time with my family, big festive meals, singing ‘Jingle Bells’ with my daughter, and the Holiday Spirit that we all share together.
What I didn’t think about was getting up at 4 am to get the best deals on Black Friday or the fabulous presents that I’ll receive on Christmas morning.
Don’t get me wrong – the gifts are great, too!! But they are not what this time of year is all about. To me, it’s about miracles and community and people getting help when they are hopeless.
