The Meaning of Christmas
The Meaning of Christmas
Funny thing is I went shopping tonight and when I walked out of the store there were people all over the place going in the store and walking out, but this little girl maybe 6 I think, very sweet and cute was there selling that plant we hang in the doorway and people kiss under it, the name is not the point. She had a little basket and the little plants in plastic with a candy cane. I stopped and looked around she was so small just standing there as all the people just walked by her not even looking at her. I turned and walked back to her and said how much are they. She looked up at me and said 2 dollars, but she just looked at me like she was shocked someone was actually talking to her. I only had a 5 dollar bill so I handed that to her and she took it in her little hand, I waited for change but she just stood there looking at me. I bent down a little and said to her do you have any change and she just whispered yes, it took her a few seconds to understand I wanted some money back. She did not know how much to give me but she pulled 2 dollars from her pocket. I just looked at her, I was totally taken by her because she could not stop looking at me. My heart just melted what a sweet little girl, she started to hand me the 2 dollars and I could tell she had no idea if it was the right amount of money. I stop her as she handed me the 2 dollars and I said hey keep that okay and she was confused, I told her keep the money okay. I just smiled at her and she smiled and kept looking at me as I walked off. I gave her $7 for a little plant from a tree that could not have been worth 50 cents. But I walked away feeling so good and it was more than worth the $7. I realized what life was all about and what Christmas was about. It is all about how we treat each other and what those sweet little eyes were saying to me as she looked at me. She was waiting for me to tell her what to do, all she knew was she was there to sell something but she did not know how to do it. You see we are all sweet wonderful little people and if we are treated right we become good people, but if we are treated horrible something way to common today that wonderful little girl that made my heart warm just vanishes into this dark world we have today. The truth is we need to take care of each other better and that is what Christmas is really about, not gifts and not products.
Don't hate me because I see life as Beautiful.
Instead you should ask why you can not see it like I do?
