Christmas time is here, happiness and cheer….oh, that we could always see such spirit through the year….
There’s one Christmas special I look for every year, A Charlie Brown Christmas. Those song lyrics strike a familiar chord with so many people. Linus sums up the true meaning of Christmas for everyone near the end of the play and isn’t it important that we all remember…and yes, there are ways to bring the true spirit into your life.
If you struggle with Christmas time, or any time of year, there is no better way to lift your spirits than by giving to others; your time, your money, your talents or skills. Everyone knows helping others is rewarding beyond words.
Try to limit commercializing your children, make some home-made ornaments, or bake some cookies with them this year. Television commercials scream at you to BUY, BUY, BUY!! But rolling out cookie dough while singing Santa Claus is Coming to Town with my mom is a most vivid memory…trying to see who among my brothers and sisters could make their candy cane last the longest without biting it off…and of course watching A Charlie Brown Christmas.
This year, start some rewarding traditions of your own, with friends, family, co-workers, wherever you can reach out. Have a Merry Christmas and hope to see you at Family EyeCare Center!!
