IT’S ALMOST CHRISTMAS

The days seem to be moving fast and Christmas day will be here in a wink. Christmas is such an interesting Holiday. It’s the only Religious Holiday that’s also a Federal Holiday. Even though it is a celebration by Christians of the birth of Jesus Christ, atheists also participate with great enthusiasm. Go figure. This year online shopping is the new Mall. I must admit it took a lot of stress away for me. Last year just trying to find a parking place at the mall was such an annoyance. I would try to spot a shopper coming out of the mall heading to their car and start following them like the three wise men who followed the star until they found a parking space. This Christmas is when we buy this years gifts with next years money, hopefully. Oh for the good old days, when people stopped shopping when they ran out of money. I think Adults have made Christmas gifting in to something that began as a simple presentation of gifts for children around the Christmas tree to a woman unwrapping six shrimp forks from her dog who drew her name. It’s like a compulsory thunderstorm we all have to go through it together. And let’s talk about the foods of the Holiday. So many delicious calories to tempt us. People are worried about what they eat between Christmas and New Years when they should be more concerned about what they eat between New Years and next Christmas. Oh look, another Christmas TV special brought to us by cola, fast food and beer. Who would ever guessed that product consumption, TV entertainment and spirituality could mix so harmoniously? I think this year many won’t be saying they’re homesick and more like sick of home. It’s been said after December 25th, besides a circus, there’s nothing that packs up and tears out faster than the Christmas spirit. I’m going to try not to let that happen. We all need to be kinder and softer to those we love and to all humanity. It’s been a tough year but I see a bit of light at the end of the tunnel, just try to focus on that. Merry Christmas to all and a mighty good night. ❤️Ro

    I’ve had MS a long time too. (Since 42, am now 69) and recently diagnosed secondary progressive. Still driving and enjoying life, so it is possible as you know. Anyway, all the best!
