It takes many different people and personalities to make up a family. Most people connect with their families because of some common ingredients such as love, patience, security, tolerance, kindness, respect, courteousness, and support. All of these ingredients are needed within the family recipe. Sometimes we have to reach deep within ourselves to extend things like patience and tolerance to a family member who may need us to exhibit a little more patience and tolerance at a particular time. One thing for sure is that most families will have unconditional love and support for one another on a regular basis. Out of all of those necessary ingredients within a family let us not forget to accept one another for the differences that we have and to let love shine through in order to provide our loved ones with what they need within the family recipe.
As we move into the Christmas holiday, let us remember the reason for this season is to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. Making a special conscious effort to be kind and loving to one another is important. Making the choice to be happy, understanding what part we played in being kind to one another, reflecting on the past year and all of the accomplishments made are important. Take the time to slow down, breathe, and reflect. Life is good, and it is such a blessing to be a part of it. I pray that you and your family and friends enjoy one another as we get together during this time. I pray that the upcoming year will bless you immensely, and give you joy and peace. Remember all of the wonderful ingredients that go into the family recipe. Live, laugh, love, and pray.
God Bless You with Good Health and Wellness,
