It Is feeling a Little Like Christmas

It is beginning to look like Christmas.

I think the stores started to stock the shelves for Christmas starting in October. I have seen on FB, a cartoon that says it all. Santa running behind the Easter bunny, the bunny saying “wait your turn,it is only Easter”. They say the older you get, the faster the years go by. I agree. what grieves my heart the most is the fact you can not say Merry Christmas anymore. I refuse to say Happy Holidays. 

Every family has their own traditions on how the holiday is celebrated. As a young widowed mother raising my four-year old son alone, I had little money for gifts for my son. My  parents bought Levi his winter coat and his snow boots . I remember feeling like a failure that I could not provide everything my son needed. I went to bed one night and felt like the Holy spirit whispering in my ear , that I am not a failure.  I had many difficulties and hardships raising my son but Levi and I survived them all.   To give back to my community,when I started working  with the Action Community Partners. I work at  at the front counter, I love meeting and greeting the families who come in . 

Life is what you make of it. I chose to make lemonade out of the lemons life has given to me. I realized I cannot change the past, but I can have a positive attitude towards my future.
