Merry Christmas everyone! Do you celebrate it with your loved ones? Do you enjoy a (vegan) dinner?
I do celebrate Christmas with my family. We eat out, we enjoy each others company and we laugh. We do this every year.
Having my whole family around made me realise something; I am so grateful for all that I have.
I think about all the refugees, that are celebrating Christmas without family. Without a Christmas dinner and without a home. How will they feel?
I realise now that I, and probably all of the readers of my blog, should be grateful for all of the happiness we have. Of course; we all have problems. Of course we all have troubles; maybe fitting in, maybe finding a new job. But our problems are so small compared to the ones of all the refugees, of all the orphan children in Africa, of all the woman in India, desperate to stand up for themselves.
Think about all the refugees, without a home,family or a nice dinner. We should be more grateful.
We owe them, we owe them in feeling grateful this Christmas. In feeling proud and happy of what we got. Although we may have lost someone close, we still have each other. We have a place to call “home”, family or friends that watch our backs and give us love.
So maybe there is something we can give to the world. Something easy, something we all should be.
So surround yourself with loved ones, show them your love and remember : be grateful of all the joy you a experience in your life. Be grateful for all the love you got.
Love and a merry Christmas,
