My Christmas Wish

Merry Christmas

I was recently invited over to Sally Cronin’s Christmas Archive Series and shared my thoughts and wishes for Christmas. Today I want to share here for you all my Christmas wishes and wish all of you a beautiful, happy Christmas.

Another Christmas post from the archives of D.G. Kaye and this time it is to share what Christmas means to her personally.

I’d like to take this time to wish all of my friends here a very Merry Christmas and happy holiday season. Yes, I love saying Merry Christmas, and with the world full of political correctness, just about everything that’s said seems to be getting some sort of scrutinizing, but there are just some phrases that remain a part of us.

I’m not of the Catholic or Christian faith, but since childhood, I was smitten with the magic of Christmas. Sure, I was captivated by the glistening of Christmas lights on the city streets, and I yearned for a Christmas tree to have in my home in all its shining glory, but Christmas time is so much more than lights and presents.

Christmas for me is a time to remember the importance of friends and family, a time to reflect on the year about to pass. It’s also a time where I miss loved ones who have passed, just a little bit more, and most of all, a time to remember gratitude.

The world seems to be in such a volatile state these days. There is much doubt and faith, many questions unanswered, too much violence, and greed. My wish is that mankind could revisit goodness, kindness, and compassion, and remember to be grateful for some of life’s most mundane things we so often take for granted.

I’m remembering my loss of my loved ones, and with that in mind, it serves to remind me just how precious life is. I’ve watched suffering, and I’ve been stunned at how in a moment’s notice a loved one can be snatched from our lives, sometimes even without warning, without a sign of illness. These types of reminders show us how quickly life can turn on a dime.

Let us remember our lost loved ones by holding them dear in our hearts, and remember the love we hold for those who are all here with us now. Let us find joy in our hearts for every little thing we have, and remember gratitude for every single day we are gifted with another day of living.

If we can all learn to let go of some of the hurt and uncertainties that dwell within us and turn that into forgiveness and hope, maybe as a unified chain of positivity, we can help to make the world a better place. This is my Christmas wish.

Wishing you all happiness and health and peace for now, and for all the years to come.

  5. Debby, yay for the true meaning of Christmas!
    I believe any faith may see the Baby as the One who grows up in their own faith. It is a story of Love and Hope. It is a Miracle which transforms the meaning of Forgiveness. . .
    My Lord is multicultural, international and open for all, He has arms spread wide and open for anyone to come to. . . He is limitless and infinite. He is Love.
    Hope you have the most beautiful Christmas filled with joy, peace and love, Debby (Sally and all visitors, too.) 💞 🕊✨
