‘Tis the season to remember Him: The hustle and bustle of the season is energizing, but don’t stress out. Take time each day to think of that tiny baby wrapped in swaddling clothes and laying in a manger. In fact, keep that thought in the back of your mind as you pick just the right gift, chose something that will make the receiver smile. Perhaps something they need or maybe a gift that will give them a lift.
If you are busy, Rice Krispy cookies are just as tasty as the fancy cookies you usually make. You don’t have to do everything your mother and/or mother-in-law used to do. Take time for Him.
If you are alone, call someone else that’s alone and have a chat. If capable, visit a senior center and chat with the residents. Pray to know who you can help. Think of some way to brighten the holiday for others rather than sitting around wallowing in self pity.
