What do you think? Is Santa real or make believe. My idea is that Santa lives in your heart. The way you are raised plays a big part of how you live your life and teach your children. Many times we play the part of keeping Santa alive for our children’s sake. But what about you when the children are no longer your focus?
I believe you need to follow your heart. Some of you say it’s too much trouble to shop and buy gifts for others. Keep in mind, it’s not the gift but it’s the thought that counts.
I met a sweet lady while in the eye doctor and she summed it up. She was the ripe age of 83. She told me she had one son but he worked a lot of hours and wouldn’t be coming to visit her during the holidays. She said ahe wished there were no holidays. Why? Because she had no family to share it with. It was just another day of living alone. Her neighbors and her church were her extended family. Her life seemed very lonely.
I tried to cheer her and explain the holiday feeling was inside our hearts. She could put up some decorations, listen to some Christmas songs and maybe that would help her feel cheerful during the holiday times. After a while, she did say she was going to bake some cookies for her neighbor. I told her that was a good thing.
Meet me under the mistletoe
I want to encourage each person to think about someone to share the holiday with. Not only family but those elderly people that need cheering up. I know we all are so busy in our daily lives with work and family but someone is hurting and longing for a visit from Santa.
Do you think Santa is real or make believe? Let your heart start believing and make an effort to cheer someone this holiday. You might become Santa in their heart and yours.
Happy holidays and Merry Christmas
