What prompts such desire to celebrate this season? I will admit that I do get caught up in the secular Christmas with the mistletoe, wreaths, lights, and baking but this does not overshadow the celebration of the gift God gave to the world one day in Bethlehem many years ago. I find that the peace of this season helps me to cope with the not so peaceful days of single parenthood. Very often life will become chaotic and overwhelming. Playing a Christmas song is sure to lift anyone's spirits, so who cares what day of the year that is? We can and should celebrate Christ coming to earth throughout the entire year. Sometimes even in June or July, a little reminder can make a bad day, not so bad. At least, this is my "happy place".
Where is your happy place?
