It’s Christmas eve and instead of spending time with family, I decided to post to my blog. I am amazed at how significant Christmas really is. I guess you do it so much, you forget how important it is to spend time with family and friends and to just enjoy their company. I think the extended family is becoming less and less in our culture and Christmas reminds us how much we need it. No matter how rough it can be, it’s important that we celebrate together.
I wish that I could capture how important this time is. Even as we sit here just hanging out, i realize how much community is a part of life. Because we are so individualistic in our culture, we think that we’re somehow reverting to our childhood if we spend time with family.
This Christmas, i want to think about how important it is for us to spend this time with family. Don’t take it forgranted, but engage in community with your extended family.
As i disengage to write this post….
