Every Day Is Christmas

I got the title from a cute family poem for children that I found, the kind of inspiring poem that we need as we celebrate the season while parts of the country have been badly hit by a recent typhoon. While the nation prepares for all the festivities that the season brings, two cities in the south that are rarely hit by storms were slammed by Typhoon Sendong over the last weekend. To date, death tolls continue to rise and people struggle to survive and recover from the devastation that was left behind. Yes, we can still celebrate Christmas, for I don't believe that the meaning of the season is confined only to a particular time of the year. We can still celebrate with a lot less trimmings and more of the meaning. ^_^ May this lovely poem inspire you... Have a truly blessed Christmas with your loved ones and family!

 Every day is Christmas
When you have the kind of mind,
That stores up all the goodness
And the sweetness it can find.
When you don't need an occasion,
To spread a bit of cheer,
But just keep on a-giving,
Of yourself throughout the year.

Every day is Christmas,
With a gaily wrapped surprise,
When you've learned
To see the friendship,
In someone else's eyes.
When you try a little harder,
And complain a little less,
Holding fast to all the fervor
Of the faith that you possess.

Every day is Christmas,
When you've found that you can be
More concerned with words like "you"
And less with "I" and "me".
When it's fun to do a favor,
And to lend a helping a hand,
When being understood means less,
Than when you understand.

Every day is Christmas,
With a beauty deeply cast,
When you find it doesn't matter,
If you're first or if you're last.
When you can face your conscience,
And be glad of what you are,
Then every day is Christmas,
With a stable and a star.
