'Tis the Season to be Jolly

Real Estate Agent with The Residential Group

Who says Christmas is just for children? If we remember the "reason for the season" Christmas was celebrated because of the birth of one child. Celebrating the birth of Christ is for all, young and not so young.

It gives me joy to give presents, but this year my joy will be lessened by my pocketbook. But I will still get joy watching my children and grandchildren open their presents. I have learned, no matter how many presents they get, they still want something else. So this year I am not going to beat myself up about not getting them every thing they want. They actually just want to be with the people that they love and love them back. (They just don't know it yet!)

So my advice to all is to remember Jesus on his birthday, concentrate on what you already have, and don't worry about what you don't. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all.
