Sitting in the service area waiting for our number to be called, my son leans over and whispers, “Everyone is grumpy.” Are you a scrooge?
Do you find yourself expressing more hurt and hopelessness during the holidays?

I gotta tell you I was a little surprised by his comment. First off, his whisper was so soft I asked him to repeat himself. And then, I couldn’t believe his insight. He was listening to the tones and watching their mannerisms.
Yet us adults are quick to say children don’t know any better. They don’t get it.
Oh yes they do! And they are modeling waht they are hearing and seeing everyday.
We expect children to have manners and to be pleasant. However, we, as adults, seem to “pass go and collect $200”. We are not held accountable for our laziness to impact the world we touch. Why not?
You might be wondering if I’m a scrooge?
It’s one thing to have a moment and it passes. But when it becomes a habit?
What I love about my children is they hold me accountable, which means they understand my expectations of them.
Just as Christ hold Himself to His own expectations; he hold us to the same.
Are you a scrooge?
We don’t realize the energy we put off — negative or positive.
How do we step away from being a scrooge?
The K.I.S.S. ~ Give unto others!
- Smile more. You look brighter. Plus, it takes less muscles to smile than to frown.
- Laugh louder. Find the humor.
- Love stronger. Accepting those for who they are.
Stop being the scrooge of the season. Remember, the reason of this season. Give unto others as He has given unto you. Merry Christmas!
