This newly released station ID of ABS-CBN reminds all of us that the Christmas season is not only a time for giving, but rather a time for thanking – thanking God Almighty for the people whom He blessed us with. We need not look far because the people around us, the people whom we live with in our homes, our family, our loved ones, are first and foremost the blessings that we have to be thankful for.
Let’s say “Thank you.” to our spouses, our kids, our parents, our friends, our families, for having been a part of our lives, who saw us through the toughest times, who shared our joys, who gave us a pat on the shoulder whenever we feel that the battle is all uphill and one more step towards our goal seems too difficult to muster, who made us laugh, who simply makes us feel loved.
In the same vein, let us be a blessing to others. We need not be millionaires to be able to give. It is not only the tangible things that we can share in the strictest sense, but we can wholeheartedly give a smile, a few minutes of our time, or a simple text message that will make somebody feel good for having been remembered.
This Christmas season, let us not get tired of saying, “Thank you!” 🙂
