The traffic has been building up.  The malls are filled to the brim with people.  Many are clearing their annual leave.  Retail businesses are thriving with so many people buying gifts.

It is this time of the year again where gifts will be exchanged.  Many of us would have bought gifts for our friends and loved ones.  Let us hope that we have also bought for our parents.  They matter too!

During the hustle bustle of going around merrymaking, let us not forget those who are less fortunate.  They are the ones who need the gifts most.

This fund raising done by a particular hotel in town touched my heart.  I hope it will touch yours too.  While we rejoice in the celebration, let us put in a prayer for the less fortunate.  Their lives would have been changed if all of us set aside a dollar for each of the gifts we have purchased and donated it to a worthwhile cause.

Do not be disappointed if the gift we receive fall short of our expectation.  It is the thought that counts.  If we still are, think of how fortunate we are to be able to live and lead a normal life. 

To my readers, I wish you all a safe and blessed Christmas.
