So blessed, I can actually say that I’ve receive a true treasure chest. My parents created us our very own treasure chest for Christmas, and being from a creative fun loving family, it came from Tortuga Island based on the Movie Pirates of the Caribbean, we each had a map with 3 clues to solve in order to get the combination so we could see what treasures awaited us.
Imagine Christmas morning going outside to see four big boxes, each with a family members name written on it, even the shipping tags were created by my parents down to the marks from customs. This end up it read as we unpacked and pulled out our skeleton and cross bones chest speckled in gold dust, we quickly worked out our clues, well…. I was the last one to figure it out, could not remember a few key facts… MOM, Help
Once the lock was figured out we carefully opened the top and out spills a chest full of gold, silver, diamonds and jewels. Once our treasure was pushed aside, the hidden bottom was open to find all sorts of fun gifts from Mom and Dad. It was the best Christmas ever. What fun we had playing Pirate and Arrrrrrr…. Hands off my chocolate coins mate!
Mom and Dad worked on this all year long, it was so much fun, I’m truly blessed. I can’t wait to do this for someone Christmas 2015.
Merry Christmas Bloggers. I wish you a wonderful safe season of Love, Peace, Joy, and….calm…. Remember to pause and breathe….just be in the moment….and ever thankful for now. There is a reason for this season, let us never forget.
Imagine visiting a museum and all of a sudden people start playing…. wow… it’s amazing
Never be to busy that you can’t lend a helping hand. The holiday season always reminds us of this. Everyone is always busy donating toys to children and turkey dinners to families in need, which is great, but don’t forget about our elderly. My grandmother is currently in a Alzheimer’s care home, the people there may not have their memories left, but they do have feelings. They just want someone to sit with them. If you’ve never been to a home before, it’s an eye opener. May I never lose my wits about me and may God bless all those who have. So if you need a mission, go ask an Alzheimer’s care home or any type of elder care home, “how can I be of service” a little time to sit with someone, hold their hand, sing a song or tell a story too…Oh, they wont remember you visited but you will. And I do believe that for a little while… you’ll bring joy to their little world. Spread Joy, love, and compassion, that’s the true Christmas spirit.
