Christmas Is About Presence, Not Presents


As we get older, our Christmas list becomes less about store bought gifts and more about those priceless feelings of togetherness.  I’ve found it’s the simplicity of spending quality time with family and friends that means more to me than anything else.  As the title above reads, it’s about PRESENCE and not PRESENTS.

Being present during the holidays helps to encourage and grow feelings of joy, peace and good cheer.  It’s sharing time and connecting with people.  It’s the simple joys of goodwill that we foster when we get out of the commercialism of Christmas and into the basic feeling of love to all.

Enjoy the simplicity of Christmas presence this year.  Open your hearts with gratitude for this moment in time.  Be thankful for each and every blessing and share your heartlights with all whom you encounter.  Life is good, even when it’s difficult and a loving presence is all we truly have.

Much love and Christmas Blessings to All!

Shine On!

  1. Yes, thank you for the love and smiles within it that you always generate on here. Merry Christmas kind lady, may your celebrations also be built on and return that love ❤ 😀
    Oh, and a Merry Christmas to the horses, the wabbit and any other creature in 'your' woods too 😀 ❤

    • Thank you Mark! I hope yours was wonderful with your dolphin as well – and that you’re feeling much better and that your internet is working successfully! ♥ 🙂

  2. I’ve been saying that for a long time! Most of what I remember about the holidays isn’t the material things but the intangibles and the people associated with those moments. Hope you had a nice holiday.
