Headed to Christmas in Florida a little differently. Our sis-in-law has cancer, just finished chemo and starts radiation soon. As a survivor I know the drill.

I wrote my post about paying it forward last month and even then mentioned that I find it boastful to talk about how I contribute, so really won't get into it here. Suffice it to say, I contribute as I can quietly and anonymously.

In our office we 'adopt' a family for Christmas, so I enjoy shopping for the names I select on the tree, and we also give toys to a local Marine's Toy Drive Dennis Swartz.  With so much 'need', I know it doesn't sound like much.  I also bake Christmas Cookies and give them to neighbors, as alot of our older folks live alone and often comment on how much they enjoy the cookies, because it's about 'being remembered'.  So for me, it all 'adds up' to wanting to make someone else's Christmas a little brighter!

1. Set aside time for them.

2. Listen.

3. Acknowledge what they have overcome

4. Feed oxygen to their ember of courage.

5. Be their cheerleader

Christmas should not be different. It is astonishing what the gift of listening brings to those who have something they need to say.

The most important thing about Christmas for me, is the time we spend together. It is not about the presents, or the food, it is about sharing memories and good times. People go crazy during the holidays making sure they  buy presents for everybody, and not forgeting about "uncle Paul". Time doesn't cost any money. Let me do a litle test for you. Answer the following questions in order and don't skip questions until you have answered the question before.

1. Name the two most important people in your life.

2. What are you going to give them for Xmas?.

3. If you win the lottery, what will you give them for Xmas?

4. What will you give them for Xmas if you knew that this were  his/her last Xmas?

I will leave you with this thought.

 

Have a Merry Christmas!
