Thankful Thursday - Miracle

"And so this is Christmas....for weak and for strong....for rich and the poor ones...for black and for white....for yellow and red ones...for old and for young.
A very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Let's hope it's a good one without any fear." John Lennon.

It's almost here.....a few more sleeps.  Malls are packed, people shopping, spending money, buying gifts to make people happy. 

Christmas - I never celebrated it growing up. I was raised Jewish but now our family celebrates both Hannukah and Christmas - two holidays that for me, are all about miracles. Miracles about Light that shine in the dark. Miracles about Light that can never be extinguished.

I used to be afraid of the dark. I didn't like sleeping without a nightlight. I still don't. Bad things can happen in the dark - I experienced them. BUT I also experienced tons of miracles.  

I love this time of year, not because of the gifts or festivities, although that's fun, but more so, because Christmas, & Hannukah are huge reminders to me that 'miracles are for real.'

Happy Thursday, Guys.

I believe in miracles as I 've experienced a major one in December when I was younger. December is a most important month to me. I celebrate my birthday, the end of the year, and Hannukah.
Happy Holidays to you and family!
