Family and friends remain the jewels of all gifts, a special kind of diamond that can be locked in ones heart for eternity. Christmas is a time for remembering, a time to share the goodness of your heart with others, and for expressing with words and gifts what loved ones means to you.
Watches and diamonds, toys and sweets to your hearts content, jewellery that sparkles with the life of a thousand stars… Christmas trees with bright flickering lights and a feast of festive food. Stacks of breath-taking presents – wrapped in colourful paper with giant bows…
We often focus on giving amazing gifts to family and friends for Christmas, so much so that it becomes a contest of outdoing one another. We are too often blinded by Christmas lights and red, red Santa with his big bag of gifts, so much so that we forget that those materialistic gifts symbolizes your love for Family and Friends. We go through the festive season starstruck, chasing after the coolest trends that money can buy. While anxiously looking for the perfect gift in chaotic shopping malls and crowded shops we tragically forget that the best gifts remain the ones you can’t wrap.
Yes – family and friends remain the jewels of all gifts, a special kind of diamond that can be locked in ones heart for eternity. Christmas is a time for remembering, a time to share the goodness of your heart with others, and for expressing with words and gifts what loved ones means to you. It is a chance to make wishes come true and to give something from one’s heart. It is a chance to give a message that will express love and kindness to the ones we care about the most. I can’t imagine anything worse than being surrounded by everything money can buy, but having nobody that cares on Christmas eve. Without the people we love, the warm fiery feeling that Christmas time brings to our human hearts would then have been replaced by a cold empty neverending black hole.
Family is precious and rare – it is a flawless diamond that has carefully been cut to shine with love and lights up souls – this should be cherished. Family represents unconditional love and appreciation, this is something that every human heart yearns for… a given… whether it is deserved or not. Family has a unique kind of love; it will never crack no matter what the pressure is. Love can’t be bought, nor can anyone determine the value of it. Love can’t be wrapped or presented nicely with fancy bows – it shouldn’t be, love shouldn’t be hidden or contained, it doesn’t have to be made up nicely – Love is pure and impressive enough without wrapping, cards or bows. True love sings a beautiful carol of joy that only the heart understands, Christmas is the ideal time to let your heart sing along.
Merry Christmas to your family! On this joyous day, and throughout the new year, may your life be filled with family, friends and pure love. May this be a time of love and appreciation of life’s most beautiful diamonds…
