In the spirit of the holidays, it is easy to get caught up in the gift-giving (and receiving!), the cookies, the music, the lights, and everything that makes Christmas so exciting. We spend time with friends and family and look forward to what the new year has to bring. However, for those individuals who may not have anyone to celebrate with, the holiday may not seem too bright. If so, this post is for you.
- You are loved. There is Someone who wants nothing more than to hold you and tell you everything is going to be okay. Hold close to the One who can make you feel better when no one else can.
- You are worth something. You have a purpose, a reason for being here, a reason for living. Treasure every day you have and shine your light on others.
- You can make a difference. To the life of a rescued pet, you have changed their world. Even when it seems like no one else needs you, they do. If you choose to shop, please adopt and save a life. Millions of animals are in shelters every day waiting for someone to love them just like you do.
- You will be okay. Stay busy and delight in the little things. Volunteer, go for a walk, or donate to a good cause. Watch football or go see a movie. Do what makes you love and know that at the end of the day, only you choose your own happiness.
Now I’m off to spend Christmas with my husband and five furbabies; each rescued, by the way. May your holidays be bright, your smiles wide, and your love shine to everyone. However you choose to spend the holidays, enjoy them!
From us to you, Merry Christmas!!
