Joy to the world the Lord has come!!! ........A Ray of hope flickers in the sky........and then comes another carol...Mary's boy child Jesus Christ was born on Christmas day...Wow..each morning you wake up to the music.....and you know its your favorite carol being played in the background. You realize the advent season is here.....and everyone's preparing to welcome the KING....The winter sets in, covering you with its cold breeze, weather looks windy and pleasant....the sun shines only for a while and mum holding you in her arms all stuffed and muffled; almost feeling her love and warmth in this cold season....Children gearing up for the choir practices, the big bright star shining right outside your window, enacting the nativity scene, the Christmas tree in your living room, Greetings sent to your loved ones, Santa Clause and my wishes.. and off course the yummy Christmas goodies prepared at home....Takes me right back when I was young..... feels nostalgic and awakens the child in me....
Amidst all this, we forget the true reason behind Christmas.... we get busy and involve ourselves completely in all the preparations and forget that its not only about the materialistic happiness but about doing something special for someone and touching atleast one life..... It could be your neighbor, a friend, an acquaintance, your maid at home, your office boy, someone you may just know or anyone who you think should have that smile on their face....No matter what faith you follow or what you believe but being a wonderful human being and having love for all is what keeps you grounded...We are blessed today with everything that we need and we should be grateful for all that we have.
Let this feeling not just awaken only once a year but let each day of our life be like Christmas.
So a warm welcome - December and Christmas!!! Hope you stay with us forever and each day of our life....
