|do you celebrate christmas because of this??|
I was talking to my friend, Mere tonight. You all might know her from her guest blog appearance about breast cancer at 30. Here is a woman who has so much to celebrate this Christmas. She is a great reason we should take the time to think about what we have and how truly blessed we are. I know this year her family and friends will be thankful for the time spent with her celebrating another Christmas. So, don’t let yourself get too wrapped up in the commercial aspect of the 25th of December. Remember why we have this holiday and don’t worry so much about the materialistic things you/your loved ones have been asking for, reflect on your year and what truly makes a difference. Meredith got a card from two young cancer patients this year and this is what it read with a picture of the two kids with their little bald heads on their “make a wish” trip:
It came without ribbons. It came without tags. It came without packages, boxes or bags. And he puzzled and puzzled 'till his puzzler was sore. Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before. What if Christmas, he thought, doesn't come from a store. What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more."
So, call me the grinch if you want, but I think we can learn something from this green guy. Merry Christmas!!
