Christmas is just around the corner and it will be so exciting to know what other people do for Xmas.
I’ll tell you about what my family and I do. We just putted up the Christmas tree, as lovely as it is from the photograph believe me it’s even better looking in reality. Although I wasn’t really there when they put this tree up. Well most of the times, things at home just happens when I’m at work and I mean good things!
Going back to the Christmas time, today when I was at the Christmas shop where I work for my holidays, the customer came in and asked for wraps to use for presents that she bought for street kids. Gosh! I missed a good story because I was on duty. Anyway, later this evening when I was reading a newspaper, I read an article about a group of senior citizens from Atteridgeville who gave elders early Chrismas presents yesterday. Like a lot of people out there are doing the same for the people in the community. That is called bringing back to the community.
You know there is a saying that “There is no place like home”, I know you recall that saying right?. To me home doesn’t necessarily mean your home where you grew up with your family, at some point I see the community as home as well. Putting a smile on someone’s face wont hurt. Sometimes we do what we do because we want to impress other people but have you really considered what impress you?I would if I were you .
We are approaching Christmas and a New year. It gets really busy this time of the year and dangerous too, please be careful out there. What ever you do think about your life, future as well as others. I’m wishing you a marry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
