December 2016.

Tomorrow is December 1st and we start the month when typically loving and giving are to the fore.  It seems an automatic thing to keep in mind the persons you are buying gifts for. Usually family or friends but sometimes the Secret Santa for someone at work you don’t know very well. Nonetheless there you are making a great effort to find just the right thing.

Also sharing our lives at this time may be people who don’t celebrate Christmas with us, like followers of Islam or the Jewish faith. That they don’t share the celebration is no reason to exclude them from the smiles you find yourself granting to others. They in turn are always ready to share the joy of their own celebrations with you.                                         It would be wonderful if those smiles could be extended beyond this new month though and at last a genuine understanding of what peace can bring could be found in the recognition that we are all one under the skin.

If we can find within us acceptance of all people and make the extra effort to enjoy the differences that make us so special individually then maybe at last we can ALL concentrate on repairing the planet for our children, grandchildren and generations to come. We can find new eco-friendly ways to generate electricity and allow those huge holes from mining to repair themselves over time. We can stop destroying the planet further by fracking for oil, especially at the expense of all those communities who have said no to it but had their wishes overridden.

I hope the new month brings you all great joy and that those of you who celebrate it have a Wonderful Christmas. Massive Hugs to Everyone whatever your beliefs.

  2. Reblogged this on Smorgasbord – Variety is the spice of life and commented:
    Ending the day on a wonderful post by David Prosser on his blog Buthidars… I give people a lot more virtual hugs than I did before I met David Prosser and in the last three years I have noticed that a lot of people are sending them back to me. Giving a smile to someone can make their day, especially if they are having a tough one.. but as David says… we should be doing that after the season of goodwill has finished officially.. Make it a year long thing… hugs all round.. thanks David.
