What is really hurting me is that people are hurting. This is the season for everyone to come together and feel loved. Christmas is about getting together with your loved ones and enjoying each others company as you celebrate. It doesn’t matter your beliefs, it doesn’t matter about money, all that matters is that you are together. Christmas is suppose to be about love, so why is everyone having such a rough time? Why do I see more depression and broken hearts, more death and a lot more negativity? Is it my set of friends or is everyone having a horrible season of holidays? Either way, what can we do?

I am a huge Facebook user, and each day I sign in and spend hours looking through post. I like to keep up with old friends, that I don’t usually talk to. I also like to share in special memories of others, such as babies, new cars, and much more. One of the biggest things I love to read are praises or small things that make peoples lives awesome. Recently, I found out that a close friend went on a prayer walk, one to get himself closer to God. He had a great time and got a lot from it. These little things make me so happy, then we also have those post about a girl that can’t take life anymore, these post are what get me upset.

Where, in life, do we find ourselves in so much pain that we have nothing to live for? I remember laughing and having a great time, as a child. Yet, somewhere we were giving a curse of depression? When did life get so hard? I’m not sure, but it is a huge problem.

We are talking about MILLIONS of people that suffer from depression. These are people that feel unwanted, abused, torn, worn, and alone. At one time, these people were happy, but something happened to where they fell and hit rock bottom. One of the main reasons is death. Everyone has lost someone due to death, it is the cycle of life, but that doesn’t mean it is easy. A death in the family can tear apart the most perfect relationships. A death as a mother can leave children broken for life, making it hard for them to even get through the day. Other reasons for depression can be; Failed classes, failed dreams, breakups, being ignored, loss of friends, money problems, and bullying. The list can go on for hours, but that isn’t the point. The point is; we have the chance to change this, by simply being there for them during the hard times!

I don’t want to see anyone hurting, especially during the holiday seasons. We are meant to be happy individuals, so what can we do? The answer is simple; we need to show them that they are loved. This doesn’t have to be a big gesture, it can as simple as texting them and telling them you love them, or inviting them over to your house for dinner. The smallest gestures can help tremendously. People just want to be wanted. They want to know that you are thinking about them. This is why Bart and I are sending out love!

I want to call this “Love for Christmas; A Better Gift.” This is where I will try to find those who are hurting and I will let them know that I am thinking about them! Bart (My Christmas Stuffed Animal) will write everyone (in pain) a small note, informing that person that they aren’t alone. I don’t know if this will help, but I have to do something. I think everyone of you guys should do the same. Write a small note to those you love, telling them that you are thinking of them, praying for them, or that you love them. It doesn’t have to be a long message, but I promise it will mean the world to those in pain. This Christmas, we need to let everyone know that we are together, as one, to celebrate. Will you do it?

We have had the first snow of the season! This is amazing, this is the best day of our lives. If you disagree, then you are with me 100%. I am regretful to say that I hate the fact it snowed. I don’t like to be wet, I don’t like to have frozen toes and the last thing; dumb ass drivers. Yes, I hate winter, not because of the cold(because I love the cold,) but more because drivers get stupid during winter.

Have you ever been behind someone during the winter? If you are me, you will get behind someone that brakes every three seconds and drive 10 mph in a 55mph zone, and if you are me you begin to scream at the top of your dang lungs. I can’t stand drivers that change how they drive because of the weather. I can understand slowing down so you don’t lose control, but go a decent speed limit! And if you can’t do a decent speed limit, then get the hell off the road so the real drivers can get to where they need to go.

These drivers put everyone at risk because you never know what they are going to do. I was behind a person one day, driving home from work, and all of sudden they slammed on their brakes. It was snowing and I guess they felt like they were losing control. Either way, they slammed on their brakes. Now, since I am an active driver, I saw that they were stopped seconds late.  I didn’t hit the car, but I remember putting my foot to the floor and praying to slowly slide to the stop, in which I did. I came inches from hitting the car. The worse part is that they didn’t have a good reason to drive so cautious. Yes, it was snowing but it wasn’t that bad. They were simply just too cautious and didn’t want to wreck, but they almost caused a wreck in the process. I find myself staring at cars, making sure everyone is doing their part to keep the streets safe, but what if this wasn’t the case. I would have ended up in that cars ass, which could have left someone dead!

I hate how people think that a small storm is something to freak out about. It is simply snow or rain, its not like fire is falling from the sky! If you aren’t stupid, then you wont get into a wreck, but being too cautious is also dangerous!!!! I told you a story about a car that was being too safe. I don’t know why those people were braking over and over, but I do know there are more people like that on the road, so be careful and drive safe.
