Tis the Season!

"Christmas reminds us we are not alone. We are not unrelated atoms, jouncing and ricocheting amid aliens, but are a part of something, which holds and sustains us." Donald E. Westlake 

It seems like everyone is getting in on the Christmas spirit. I wandered around the mall doing some last minute shopping. Although packed with people, it was such a great feeling to see the smiles and nods from everyone. It felt as if we're all connected, a part of something greater than each one of us. I love it! 

Came home happy, and wished it was like this all year through - the consideration, the kindness, reaching out to friends and strangers alike. 

Something is in the air. For me it's a God thing. 
Tis the season. Have a Merry Christmas Guys!

I've just read in a blog, a humorous post entitled "We are not alone".
Indeed, on holidays we feel part of a crowd, of a tradition - and that is a good feeling.

The truth is that in a mall, lonely people, especially elderly ones, feel that way even on regular days. I've noticed lately, that like children and youngsters , they prefer the McDonalds: the place makes them feel part of a large family. Its full of parents, kids, sometimes one spots a neigbor or a friend - and this is great.

Wishing you Happy Holidays!
