Best Wishes for a Bright Holiday Season for Everyone in the World

As we celebrate the biggest holiday here in the U.S., my thoughts turn to those less fortunate in the world. I will be visiting with family, with a roof over my head and a bountiful table brimming with food. I have a good life. But many others around the world aren’t as fortunate as they face another night huddled in in the cold, with no place to call home. Millions are caught in the crossfire of deadly conflicts.

My most fervent wish this holiday season is for more joy and abundance for those in need and peace in the world. And best wishes to your and your loved ones for a healthy and joyous holiday season.

  1. Well said my friend. May your holidays be filled with much happiness and joy with all your friends and family. May the world find peace, a tall ordeal but one can always hope. :-), Hugs, Susan

    • Susan — Thank you. And my best wishes to you and your loved ones for happy holiday season and blessed New Year! So glad to know you.

  2. What a thoughtful post Jeannette. My thoughts are so uplifted right now having been with my 90 year old dad for 2 full days, being blessed to still have him here. And then spending a day with my mom in her long term care facility. And THEN ending the week with a wonderful dinner with my two younger sisters. The only way it would be complete is being with my son and his family – just couldn’t happen this year being this part of my family is on the east coast and he is on the west coast. Nevertheless, I’m staying focused on my blessings while tomorrow we will pray for those less fortunate.

    Merry Christmas Jeannette! It’s an honor to know you.

    • Pat — I feel honored to know you, too. I’m so glad you still have both your parents. Tough that you couldn’t see your son and his family. But they are still in your heart.

  3. Agree with you completely, Jeannette.

    Watching kids in the family opening their abundance of Christmas presents I couldn’t help reflecting that many kids in this world will not be getting many, if any, presents this Christmas. And they are not just abroad but in our countries as well.

    Merry Christmas, Jeannette!

    • Catarina — Yes, it’s sad that too many children everywhere — even in countries of great abundance like the U.S. — go without. Life is unfair.

    • It was great, Jeri. Visited family members in North Carolina (your home for a little while) and had a grand time. Happy New Year to you, too!

    • Becc — yes, we’re both lucky. My parents were immigrants and came to this country as small children. So it was my fate to be born here and enjoy a very good life.

  4. Dan — and you saw those unfortunate people on your world travels. Sad to say, we still have too much poverty in this country, too.

  5. Thanks for giving holidays wish to all people in the world. For me, everyday is a holiday.I really enjoy holidays and love to go on trips with my family and friends in holiday seasons. We get holidays in schools and colleges but it’s very difficult to get holidays in industry. They give fixed holidays to their employee. Govt. employees can take holidays together for one month or two month in a year for his family and children. Thanks for sharing this post with us.
