Helen Keller – holiday quote

bewow-network-badgesilver threading and Ronovangreen starsI was an unhappy child. We were poor and Santa barely dropped anything off at our house. Our friends were blessed with wonderful gifts. It made me sad.

Now that I have grown up I have learned that love is the best and most beautiful thing in the world and we can’t touch it or see it, but we can feel it spread throughout our heart.

I love my family, especially my 3 children, K1, K2 and W, my dad K, my brother K2, Sister D and all the grandchildren and husbands of the children.

I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, Happy Chanukah and Happy Kwanzaa. If I missed your special holiday I am sorry and please tell me and I will add it to my post. Love you all, no matter what God you celebrate.

    Me too.
    I came from a very poor family, but love is the greatest treasure we have.
    It is the one thing I got from my grandparents, parents, aunties & uncles and cousins … that was matter the most to me right now that I am older …
    But it does take a longer time for us to learn to understand that these are the greatest value of life ever …

    Wish you a lovely Wednesday, Tessa!

    I did not come from a poor family but we never had too many gifts simply because it was not in our tradition to give gifts. As we grew up and came to know through media that gift giving was an essential part of the Christmas celebration, we wanted as only children can want, to be covered with gifts. Then my parents started giving us one new set of clothes and may be some candied cherries. That was it but there was so much of love, comfort, good cheer, smiling and laughter in our home that I would not have ever had it otherwise.
    Praise God and thank you Tessa for writing this- helping us appreciate what we had or have in our lives instead of wanting something else.
