I have decided to do this idea of buying the book Christmas Jars by Jason F. Wright and giving a Christmas jar to a mother and five children. Her husband recently died from cancer. This year will be difficult for them. The holidays will be difficult to cope without the husband and father that they have loved so much. I have been blessed the past three years. I have been blessed with both the good, the bad and the ugly. But what has come out of the bad accidents in my life will give a young family new hope. New hope in humanity and an anonymous donor…..Me. It’s not all about me but about a family. Family is what life is all about. What happens in life is this. You are born. You experience all that life has to offer both the good times and the bad times. You survive. Somehow through the grace of God and pure miracles you begin to believe that there really is hope. Hope that tomorrow will be a better day.

I received an email from a group moderator to a craft group that I belong to but do not participate in. She was asking for a donation of $5.00 through paypal or snail mail to help in her need for a $5,000.00 emergency. Every year around the holidays I donate cash to some sort of charity. I feel blessed that I am alive. Maybe I can cash in the loose change at the end of the month and see how much I have to send to this individual. I may even send her a few prayers that I have accumulated over the years. If receiving money could be that simple……It sounds like a pyramid scam. Who knows I guess I’ll have to take the risk and bless a needy person.

One of the most difficult things to do in life is to deal with the loss of a loved one. Especially during the holiday time. It should be a time of happiness when families gather together and celebrate their blessings. For most individuals this is their time for reconnecting with loved ones they haven’t seen in awhile. For others this time brings great sadness because their loved one may not be with them any longer. No matter what the circumstance….Holidays are a time for memories. Reliving the past and making new ones. Sometimes thinking about the past may bring sad memories. But now is the time to make new ones. Live in the moment. Today is all you have. Each day brings us closer to a new reality….Some day we will all die. Some sooner than others. Make each moment count. Share your blessings with those you love and those who are less fortunate. Slowly you will heal from the grief that you may feel. It takes time. As always never be afraid to seek professional help for medications that you may need. Counsellors can help you deal with the emotions that you are feelings. The first step is realizing that you can not do it alone.
