This December I was busy with many things not related to Christmas. I found it difficult to focus on the true meaning of the season and could not really feel the Spirit of Christmas. One night, when all was quiet and calm, I sat on the couch for a long time, alone; just me and the Christmas tree. I thought about all my many blessings. I thought about my family and how the Lord has blessed us. This year I found the Christmas Spirit in gratitude.
