Here’s Wishing You A Blessed Holiday Season & A Happy New Year!



I’m certain as Christmas draws closer, memories go back to times of long ago and of people who are no longer in our lives. I remember my own mom worked very hard to create holiday memories for us and our kids, and I’m happy to say that she was extremely successful. It is one of her greatest legacies to our family.


Time flies, as life pretty much guarantees it will, but we will always feel the nearness of our parents, our children and their families, our aunts and uncles, our beloved cousins, and our friends, no matter where they might be, because we’ll always have our memories of them.


Let’s not forget  joyful memories and let’s keep them close to our hearts. Let’s hold  loved ones close and not forget to tell them how much we love them. We don’t really remember the gifts we received over the years, but we never forget the moments shared with others.


Our world has become a much more dangerous place than it was when we were growing up, or when our children were growing up. Even while we enjoy the holiday season we must take time to pray for peace and think what the Prince of Peace wanted most for those of us on earth. We can’t forget those brave Christians who profess their faith even when they are threatened with the possibility of death for their faith.  God tells us to love others as we love ourselves, and while few of us would argue with this logic, in a world grown darker, it becomes more difficult. We have been truly blessed in this country, and it is thanks to God we have such joyous memories of life here. But during this holiday season and in the new year to come, let us not forget to keep vigilant in prayer that peace will come to us all and we will learn to live together in harmony.

Whether you are celebrating Hanukkah or Christmas this holiday season, have a joyous time and remember to be thankful for all your blessings this past year and have many, many more in 2016! In the words of one of my favorite Christmas songs, “Let there be peace on earth, and let it begin with me!”

Thank you for stopping by.
