This Christmas, travel for most people around the world is not on the agenda. COVID and its Omicron variant have ruined not only many holiday and vacation plans, but also many family gatherings. Many people this Christmas will spend Christmas alone or, if they are lucky, with their partners or their immediate family.
More so then, this year it is a time for giving. The greatest gift I have ever received came from a person who had nothing material to give me, however they gave of themselves freely and what they gave was worth more than anything of monetary value. I thanked them for this gift, and the reply was: “I thank you for being a so receptive, so welcoming, and I thank you for taking what I give with pleasure.”
These days when we try to think of others and do something for them, remember that you don’t have to spend a fortune in order to buy gifts for everyone. Give something of yourself. Give your time, a kind word, do something unexpected and surprise people. A phone call, a card, a letter, a thoughtful hamper left on someone’s door. Donate your time to people who need it most. An elderly neighbour, a sick person in hospital or confined at home, a relative who hasn’t heard from you on the phone for ages.
Merry Christmas, Season’s Greetings, Happy Holidays, Peace and Love!
