Hey, I know a lot of us are unemployed. I get that kind of stress. But, for all of the talk people do about how they "love" Christmas and how they get the "real" meaning, they sure appear the opposite.
Too many people at the stores aren't smiling. No, they are too busy yapping on their cellphones to even be in the present (no Christmas pun intended). If not on their phones, they are bitching at their children or pushing others out of the way with their carts. What happened to all of that holiday jolly?
Same in the parking lots. People see that you are pulling out so they hurry to slam into gear and get out ahead of you. Never mind if you are halfway out of your space. You just damn well better wait for them to leave. After all, they are far more important to you. What happened to treating others with decency and respect?
People, slow down a little. Look into the eyes of other people out shopping and parking their cars. If you really look, you will see another human being there. What a surprise! You aren't the only person in the world!
Let's all take a little inventory and start practicing what this season is supposed to teach us. Love. Patience. Generosity. Forgiveness.
Ho Ho Ho. Have a nice day! And try to make it a nice day for others!
