Reach Out To Others

Today take a day to move outside your circle of acquaintances suggests Pauline Wallin, a Clinical Psychologist in Pennsylvania.  Call a long-lost friend to wish them a Merry Christmas or join a community activity such as a town square tree lighting, or volunteering at a charity.

27 Miracles Countdown to Christmas Day 17

“Celebrate the Quirky”

“Learn to chuckle over the silly slip-ups that happen every holiday.  You’ll find that happens every holiday.  Then write them down.  You’ll find that these mishaps often become the fondest memories of all.  “Some of our most memorable moments are the least expected, says Ronald G Nathan, an Albany New York, clinical psychologist.”

What was your fondest Christmas mishap?

I remember being super excited to bake cookies with the kids( mind you I can cook and bake cakes, but cookies, even the slice and bake don’t come out right!!).  One year we are slicing and getting ready to bake the cookies and we pulled them out of the oven and they were flat as a pancake and not done well at all.  I remember my  older son saying, Santa won’t eat those, I said we have store-bought cookies and my son said , “Santa only eats baked cookies, mom not the ones at the store”  Out of  the mouth of babes!!

We have a new tradition that we can share with Kaleb the baby of the family, Dad makes good cookies!!!!!!!

Make Christmas memories with your loved ones and kids, they grow up too fast!

27 Miracles Countdown To Christmas Day 7

“Reach Out to Others”

” “Take a day to move outside your normal circle of acquaintances”, suggests Pauline Wallin, a clinical psychologist and life coach in Camp Hill, PA.  “Call a long-lost friend to wish them a happy holiday.  Or join the camaraderie of  community activities, such as a town square tree lighting and holiday plays.”  Better Homes and Gardens

What a perfect way to end the day remembering the excitement in my little boy’s face today as we were watching the Winter Garden Christmas Parade today.  Everyone is there for the same reason to enjoy and support those in the parade.  These are the memories to build with family.

I remember back in 2010, how 27 Miracles did the Big Christmas Extravaganza and closed down the streets in Winter Garden to be able to host an event of entertainment to benefit Toys for Tots, Honor those serving Our Country, Support and raise awareness for Breast Cancer and to allow the children of the boys and girls club to come and enjoy the event and receive gifts from Santa!  The little town of Winter Garden really embraced this event with their donations.
