Joy and Happiness

Holiday time has always been one of my favorite times of year. The Christmas decor, family gatherings, the feeling it brings. Holiday time seems to really make a house feel like a home during this time of year.

It’s also the time of year that we all feel super stressed. From the dinner parties, gifts, and fighting with crowded stores. Instead of feeling the joy that this season brings some of us tend to try to rush through it and not enjoy it.

I have fallen in the endless pit of making everything perfect instead of enjoying each moment we have with family and friends. Enjoy the little things! No gift or toy will ever replace those cherished moments with family. Give back to those who are less fortunate. Let us remind them that we care about them always. There are so many things we can all do to make the most of what we have. We just have to see it as blessings and blessing onto others.

Let us finish this year with loving one another and enjoying Gods gift! 🙂

  1. With the recent passing of my grandmother right before the Thanksgiving holiday, I’ve come to appreciate my family and being with them a bit more. This past Sunday, I traveled to Mexico to visit my mother’s family and to pay my respects to my dear grandmother.
    While I was only able to be there for a short moment, I got to reconnect with family members who I haven’t seen in years. It was wonderful to see everyone again. I was grateful to spend time with them and everyone else in that town that I haven’t seen in a long time. Yes, the death of a family member is sad but I didn’t see sadness. Instead I saw smiles everywhere as everyone put aside their religious differences and make efforts to be kind to each other.
    I’m grateful for that. I’m grateful that my grandmother got to enjoy 99 years of life. Usually I dread the holiday season, but now I’m looking forward to see more of my family this season.
