Christmas Love

Today, I am driving home to Bakersfield to spend Christmas with my whole family (including the little Mercado on the way)! I have thought about what Christmas means to me, and the one word that comes to mind
Christmas love! From me, to you.
I think I have said my piece about my love for this holiday. And not to get all preachy, but I just want to make sure I get a chance to appreciate the true reason for the season! I know this isn't politically correct, but for me personally, I celebrate Christmas because of the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ. That is what Christmas really means to me. His love shines down upon us every Christmas, and brings true meaning to the holiday!

My biggest hope is not to offend any of you by saying this, because I love you all so! And if you love me at all, you will respect me for being strong enough to put my beliefs out there!

If that isn't what you believe, at least do me a little itty bitty favor. Take a second this Christmas, before you open presents, and be thankful for every single little thing you have! Love can be shown so many different ways, not just with presents. So many times we get wrapped up (literally ha) in all the gifts, and expecting presents. And trust me when I say, I love presents just as much as the next person.

I never said I was perfect, or selfless, but I sure as heck will try a little harder to be this holiday. Because when we sacrifice our selfish wants, and put others before ourselves, that is when we truly will experience the warmth of love. And something I have really come to learn is that love is the glue that holds this big bad world together. Surround yourself with the people you love, and make sure you let them know how you feel every day. Life is too short to not fill each day with lots of love!
Who spreads love more than Mickey and Minnie?
Okay, I'm done! Back to getting present. Tomorrow the winner of my Giveaway will be announced!!!!! I recorded a video, in which I am super awkward. So, get excited! Stay tuned...
No Complications when it comes to Love
