WestJet really out did themselves with this one!

If you haven’t already heard about this story or seen the YouTube video, WestJet recently made magic happen by working with Santa to make Christmas wishes come true. They gave children the fuel to keep their little hearts glowing with the belief that good ole’ St. Nick does exist.

I can only imagine the  amount of racing cars, anxious WestJet shoppers, confused sales associates, excited planners and hard work that made this all happen.

Some will call it a marketing ploy, others will say that WestJet really cares.  In my eyes, regardless of the intention (which btw I do believe is genuine), the state of the world today has me welcoming this act of kindness. We can all use Christmas Cheer.

For many, this season is a sad time of year or a time they may reflect on with another year passing and thoughts of ‘what have I really accomplished’.

I feel it’s a time to celebrate and appreciate all that I’ve been blessed with and a time to thank God for allowing me to see another year and hear stories such as this.

Though I don’t know anyone on that flight, I want to thank WestJet for bringing joy to the hearts on the flight and those touched just by hearing the kindness of your actions.

Sharing is caring and caring is love!

And Scene…Fade to 2013?…

Well, we made it my friends!

We made it past the doomed Dec 21, 2012. People seriously believed that the world, as we know it, was going to be done and over with. I never really followed it to know how it was suppose to happen but I can tell you if I did believe in this apocalyptic event, I would have stopped paying my bills a long time ago and traveled the world. Wait, I can’t believe I just thought that.. Why would I wait for something massive to happen before going to see the world! Hmmm…. I’m onto something here. But I digress.

We made it past Christmas Day too.

I’m not sure if you felt it too but this Christmas season wasn’t the same.
There was no ‘buzz in the air’.

It could be the lack of snow in the city (which I’m not complaining about). It could be that I did my shopping in October so I wasn’t in the malls to hear the holiday music or see the shoppers bustling around looking for that perfect gift for their loved one. 

Actually, I was in a grocery store the other day and heard ‘Cuts like a Knife’ playin overhead but unless that song was about carving turkeys, I don’t think it counts as a Christmas tune.

I didn’t have any parking lot confrontations, which is unheard of. Or maybe it was because I only watched ‘National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation’ once and didn’t see ‘Elf’ at all.

A few people I’ve spoken with have agreed that something is different. They said if it wasn’t for the children in their lives that they may not have gone all out. All I can say is thank God for children. They truly keep the sparkle of Christmas alive.

Though I have no kids of my own, there are 9 kids that I’ve know since their birth and all of whom I hold dear in my heart. Most of them are tweens now and they already have everything in the world so I have no clue what to get them but gift cards.

Well, regardless of what the difference is, I am grateful for many things such as my health, my family (by blood and by love), my career, my home and mom’s fresh bread (made from scratch – no bread makers here).

One thing I do feel is something big coming for 2013! I have no clue what it is or what form it’ll come in but it’s near.

Over the years I’ve experienced these feelings of when there is a shift in my life. I’m not crazy…not in the psycho sense anyways.

We all have a sixth sense, it’s just a matter of tuning into it. When I get these feelings, something always comes of it. This one is going to be major!

I’m looking forward to the change.

Change is evolution and that’s the only way we grow as individuals.

Change is often for the better. Don’t resist it…embrace it and believe me it will work in your favour!

2013 is going to be a spectacular year!!
