It's coming, I feel it. Right now it is a kind of subtle giddiness inside me, a vague sense of excitement, an inside kind of glow. The Christmas season is just around the corner and I feel it !!! Do you feel it as well ??? I was in Rite Aid yesterday and they have Fall things out, which to me is a direct connection to Christmas !!! I am starting to hear songs in my head........."...angels we have heard on high..." Or .........."Chestnuts roasting on an open fire......" As this excitement continues to grow I always tend to grow more hopeful for the world. I am a little idealistic but each year as Christmas approaches I always have the hope that maybe people will finally realize we are all part of the same family, the human family and that some of the silly divisions between us will abate because of that realization and that everyone perhaps will be touched by the magic that is Christmas. The lights, the tree, the decorations, the carols, the time spent quietly appreciating all the things I have in my life as Christmas approaches, all of these things are working their wonder inside me right at this very moment. It will not be long before I am saying very proudly "MERRY CHRISTmas" to people in the stores despite their "Happy Holidays" or "the same to you" replies. As part of the human family, the Christmas family, I feel it is part of my duty to spread the cheer and wonder of Christmas whether or not I am perceived to be a lunatic. I love the evenings where I sit with my furchildren gathered around me and the only thing lit in the living room is the tree and the fireplace....The blazing, glorious tree, which reminds me of the Light of The World. Yes, the glowing, bright wondrous Jesus and his ever warm and glowing love. Sometimes as I sit looking at the tree, I talk to Him. I apologize for my short comings and I tell Him of my hopes and fears about the future. There is no better time than Christmas to me to connect with Him.......It's coming nearer and nearer every day. This year I have a new family. My family here at MMC. My very dear new friends include folks like Xmas365, Ballcoach, Bradmac, Rockchild, ChristmasHeart, Christmas-A-Holic, Snow In Texas, Made582, Jeff Westover, Jimmy Olsen, and George Broderick Jr. and all are part of my new family as well as many, many others here on the site. Each of you have already given me a precious gift. You have given me your time, your friendship, your encouragement, your humor, your acceptance and most importantly of all you have all given of yourselves which in and of itself is such a wondrous gift. I know that this year when it is all over, I will not be as sad and empty because I have my MMC family but for now.....it's coming. Do You Feel it ???? ....."Joy To The World, The Lord Has Come........"

    I have felt it coming for awhile by here on this site. This site has been so great and I agree with you all the great people on here. I look forward to coming here every day, seeing what people write about the good things the bad things or just the people that need a quick pick me up. You are a great support to myself and I am sure a lot of people on here.
