It sits there under the tree, a symbol of someone's love for you. But does it need to be full? My goal throughout the year is to give the ones I love gifts. Most of the time I deliver them on birthdays, anniversarys and Christmas, but for this year, I'm doing something different.
I'm leaving a wrapped empty box under the tree.
It represents the gift that I have been given, that I cannot see, nor grasp. The gift of everlasting love, compassion and blessings. I am not hungry, homeless or wanting. I have been blessed. There are those who aren't as lucky, and I can't help them all. But I will try to. Because I have been given a gift under my tree every year. It's time to recognize and appreciate it.
I wish you all a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah
and wonderful holiday season.
