Merry Christmas Happy New Year!

 

Here it is 2016 and another holiday is upon us.  The years seem to fly by so quickly now.  I can remember when it seemed eons before Christmas came around again.  The anticipation of the aroma in the air, the gifts under the tree, the pilgrimage to Church and the family gatherings around delicious food and desserts.  The feeling of belonging to a community whether you had family or not was so pronounced at Christmas.  It was as if the world stood still while we celebrated.  The culmination of it all would happen on New Year’s Eve when everyone celebrated just being alive for at least one more year.

Many people, myself included at times, can become very blue during this season, and I wish that wasn’t so because it is a happy time.  A time to celebrate peace, love and joy that is all around us if we just look for it.  Just being a part of this great world of ours is a reason to pause and say thank you.  Christians, like myself, are happy because of the birth of Jesus Christ.  He is our Saviour and our Lord.  Many people of other religions celebrate something similar on their Holy Days and that tells me that we are in one way and another all connected.  Not only do we share our human similarities, but we also share our faiths, we just acknowledge and practice them in different ways.  Even atheists celebrate something probably nature itself if not a God.

So my fervent wish during this holiday season is that every person follow a dream, stop and realize what they do have and not what they don’t.  Be glad that they are alive.  Be happy that hope is always around the corner and we just have to look there to find it.  My wish includes a hope that everyone celebrates and partys with joy in their hearts. Living for the moments we have and sharing that joy with others in anyway possible for them.  My wish is that everyone have a MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR.

And that is the way I see it here in Brooklyn.

As an average, American born woman I've decided to write and share my thoughts and beliefs in a blog. This blog will be very simple and hopefully click with the rest of the people out there, who feel as I do, but just can't express it with words, on a variety of subjects. I'm not a researcher. I'm not a scholar. I'm not anything other than an average American who has opinions about a multitude of issues and I'm tired of holding them inside myself and bending the ears of my family and close personal friends. I'm not claiming I'll always get it "right". I'm not claiming any political or religious affiliations. What I am claiming is my privilege as an American to exude free speech. I will be honest, straightforward and probably extremely wordy. At times I may share my own photos or my own recipes or just my own gripes, but most times I will attempt to share how my peers feel about current issues and why my generation of friends and acquaintances can't grasp society's lack of common sense today. I may unintentionally offend people, I will absolutely make mistakes and errors because I am first and foremost a human being and we all know no one is perfect. I most likely will never have facts and figures and I mean NEVER. This blog will totally express how I see things and I expect there will be plenty of counter opinions and possible argumentative theories about what I will express so I will respect that and accept it as my risk for writing this blog. Just having the option in this great country of ours to create a blog, is to me a privilege I would defend to the end!
