Ho ho ho! Santa does not exist! Ho ho ho!
But you do!
Somewhere in your community today, there's a person in a wheel chair longing to be loved and hugged. That person could be in a wheel chair for his or her first Christmas. Give that person a hug and do spead some genuine holiday cheer by spending some time with that person.
More than that, you can give the gift of hope. But how exactly can you do something like that? Hope is an intangible thing and it cannot be bought in Walmart. It has to come from the well spring of good inside all of us that we may share it. The thing is, we can only share something if we have it.
Today is December 22nd, and by now people are rushing around to buy gifts. It's all about the mayhem, the chaos, the rumble and tumble and the noise.
Now, let me ask you this question, "Where's the hope in all of that?"
How can you find hope in chaos and manic behavior?
But you already know the answer to that... :P
Perhaps, another person that needs some care and attention too are those who are giving care and attention to people in wheelchairs. Not every caregiver is tasked with an equal ward.
Some are blessed with more than just patients, and become friends.
But then, it's an unfortunate reality that some, if not many of wheelchair bound people have been through traumatic circumstances leading to difficult personalities. This makes the caregiver's job more challenging if not stressful.
If you're on a wheelchair and have been this "challenging person" once in your life, now would be a good time to repay the kindness that's been given. Remember, the person who once gave you the care that you needed also needs some care.
2012: 'Tis a Hard Year
This year has been a pretty pretty rough one and they seem to be getting tougher as they go along eh? But yeah, as much as people and nature are the ones that made it tough for most of us this year, it's also people and nature that can heal the wounds that have been inflicted.
A universal cure that I've come across that works through the coldest of nights and through the fiercest of storms is that potent mixture called love and hope.
Unlike the gift certificate that you could use in the mall, unlike the 50% discounts offered all over, unlike all the coupons and what not that you could find - hope and love, when combined spring inexhaustibly. You only need to find it in yourself - wheelchair bound or not - to freely give it away.
Hey hey! Happy Holidays everyone!
