Motivation Monday

Christmas season is here!!! As hard as it is to believe, it really is here. The time to celebrate Christ’s birth, to be with family and a time of giving.

Giving is such an amazing blessing. I love to give things to people. I think I get more joy out of it than the person I am giving it to. Lol.

There is just something about giving that feels so wonderful. I think it has to come from God giving His son to us. He gave a sacrifice that I don’t think many of us would be able to do. In that gift, He gave us so much I don’t know that we even comprehend everything.

I do know that blessing others with a gift of any kind will bless you more than you may realize. Even a smile could change someone’s day. I remember one time when I was working at the store called Fashion Bug…if you remember it. My boss was really hard on me. Any slight mistake and she would yell at me or say something condescending.

A customer saw this happen one day and I was trying so hard not to cry. She looked at me, gave me the sweetest smile and said, “don’t worry, things will get better.” She made feel so much better and she was right. Shortly after that my boss started being nicer to me. She was never really nice, but I didn’t dread going to work when she was working too.

So, even if you can’t give something physical remember to give a smile, kindness and most of all love. You may not know the affect it will have on someone. You may save a life….or at least help them through something just by showing kindness and love. I hope you have a great week! Talk to you later, Mandy
