“Christmas is the season for kindling the fire of hospitality in the hall, the genial flame of charity in the heart. ”
― Washington Irving
imagine, if this was true in every heart?
Imagine, having to chose between your family and your spouses family. Hearing that your adult stepdaughter who lives with you is unwelcome for Christmas your family’s Christmas, but her 7 year old son is welcome. What would you do who would you chose? Your daughter, grandchild, and sister, brother in law and neice? They expect your wife to make the choice also. Would you let your son go where you are not welcome?
Your daughter has never been easy for people to love, she has never had tact and at one point she has a wonderful child and no place to go, could you let her live on the streets? Most of you say NO. Could you accept her even though she constantly says things with out thinking. You can accept a child in your extended family with drug issues and not the one with mental issues. So my daughter, has issues puts off negative vibes she’s unwelcome? She my daughter can hurt feelings when she doesn’t think but my daughter has been with me through almost four years of medical issues. She has been there for rides to ER hospital visits and nursing home visits. She surprises me with things she buys me and tries to be a loving daughter.
If you are her friend she has your back also, she doesn’t let people put you down,
She loves her son, she may not be the poster child Mother but she tries. We differ on Parenting, most of you parents don’t always agree with others parenting. My grandson is a caring loving 7 year old who adores everybody. He doesn’t have a mean bone is his body. Now he also has to face the stigma of family members not wanting him around like one of my other granddaughter does from these members of my husbands family.
So, now the ball is in my yard, I am the nicest person in the world till you hurt those I love. Even when those people can hurt me with comments. Remember the reason my daughter is here is her son, 1st most. I know what it is like to be unsure of where you are sleeping, who will be taking care of you,
Most of all I KNOW that Christmas is a time of compassion and understanding, taking people in and giving them comfort regardless of what your think of them. Christianity teaches a lot of things “Forgiveness: Let ye among you who has not sinned cast the first stone.”
Remember Christ’s teachings and rise up to be a better Christian than you are. I will try and rise up and give you forgiveness, but you have hurt too many people I care about, forget my feelings,
I believe in KARMA, compassion, respect & love for one another. Even a whole lot more!
So, is this Christmas?
Merry Christmas, Happy Kwanzaa, Happy Hanukkah, or a simple Happy Holidays which if you are world citizen and celebrate any of the above holidays or any other I respect your choice,
GIVE EVERYONE RESPECT & UNDERSTANDING…
