I MAY HAVE A PROBLEM… AND OTHER THOUGHTS

I have a confession to make. This is something I’ve been keeping quiet about for a while, but I think it’s time I come clean. You are all such loyal readers of my tidbits, that I believe you deserve this honesty. I have to say that I am a—self-diagnosed—Christmas-holic. I am in love with the holiday. You could even say I’m obsessed with it. And why is that? Because it’s November 3 today (the day of writing) and I have started listening to Christmas music and getting myself in the Christmas spirit ever since November 1st!
That’s right, my Christmas celebrations have already started. Okay, don’t worry, I’m not going completely overboard. I haven’t started decorating my house or desk yet. I wear headphones when I listen to Christmas music so as not to disturb or annoy my co-workers. And I haven’t started wearing my Christmas shirts. But, be prepared, because come December, all of that will start. In December you can expect to find in my office, singing Jingle Bells, while decorating my Christmas tree.
What I also find really great is that I’m not the only person who is starting to get into the holiday spirit. In fact, I walked into the Dollar Tree a week before Halloween and I saw that they already had their Christmas products in stock. And, as I listen to the radio on my way to and from work, I notice that several of their advertisements are geared towards the holiday season. And, though this may go without saying, but hearing those ads makes me very happy. And I’m the type of person who gets quite annoyed with advertisements when I just want to enjoy the music on a long drive. But Christmas related advertisements are always an exception.
But Christmas isn’t about presents, decorations, Christmas songs or Christmas related advertisements. Christmas is about togetherness. It’s about love and hope and kindness. Christmas is about being kind to one another, being there for one another and helping people who may need it. The thing I love most about Christmas and the holiday season is that it brings people together. It brings out the best in people. It shows me how amazing people can be when we all work together to accomplish a goal—any goal.
And that brings me to the most important part of my tidbits. I was online last night (the night before writing) and I read an article about a young boy who has stage four cancer. According to the article, which you can read at http://www.krem.com/mobile/article/news/9-year-old-cancer-patient-in-maine-to-celebrate-his-last-christmas-early/293-488234286, the child will be celebrating Christmas next weekend. And they are inviting everyone to send Christmas cards to him at: 22 Bramhall Street, Room 653, Portland, Maine, 04102.
I, personally, will be sending him a card. It’s the least I can do. With the upcoming arrival of Thanksgiving—which is a holiday I always remember to acknowledge as well—I have started to think about everything I am grateful for, and the fact that I am healthy and alive is at the top of the list. So many people, like this child, are not so lucky, and if I can bring him a few minutes of happiness, then that will be one of the bests I could give someone. And, in fact, it would be one of the best gifts that I could receive. This gift being the opportunity to put a smile on someone’s face, when they are going through the most difficult times in their life.
So tell your family, tell your friends, tell your neighbors, tell your co-workers; tell anyone you know that they can also send Christmas cards to this child in Maine. Please click on the article link for more details about how you can make a difference in this child’s life.
