Something happens around Christmas time. As the year draws to a close, and December 25th comes rolling around (it actually has rolled around- in fact as I write this, it’s now December 28th…), we, either as Christians or those who observe Christmas not because of the faith aspect but because of the family one; start to become more generous. Have you noticed it? We start shopping and act a little kinder to strangers. We help more at the grocery store. We are more courteous and polite, more emotive and empathetic, more encouraging and reassuring. We say the words ‘merry Christmas’ to our fellow man (do we really mean the words though? But that is reserved for another post entirely!), and during the December period, we aim to at least maybe support one charity, go the church more often, try to detach ourselves from social media, and maybe, just maybe, love our enemies a bit more. But what happens once the year ends and we’re faced with New Year’s Day the next year?

Starring: Kathryn Prescott, Cynthia Watros, Anna Jacoby-Heron, Alexis Denisof, Zac Pullam, Milena Govich
It’s been over a week since the 10th episode of Finding Carter, but here I am again, writing my review of episodes 7-10. One of my favourite new shows of 2014 so far (I can’t say it enough, if the show continues with the calibre that it is showcasing, it could be the new One Tree Hill, provided the actors are on board and committed, and the show survive that long), Finding Carter’s use of a poignant, emotive and sensitive subject and its ability to turn around a topic so mellow and bring about a story so intriguing, interesting and with such a depth to both its characters and its plotline is nothing short of something extraordinary.
In my opinion, family and healthy relationships are probably one of the most important things in life. Family is something a person should be able to rely on, and can support you through thick and thin. Family should love you without condition, and always have your best interest at heart. Family sticks by you even when the world turns their back, and family never judges you, and helps you when you are down.
Sentimental- the definition is pretty simple. Something of your past that you hold onto, not because of any monetary value, but because of the intrinsic value you place on it. It may not necessarily be the most popular thing of that time period, but nevertheless, you hold onto it because of the fond memories it gives you. In this weekly post of Sentimental Saturdays, we discuss the things that make us remember the times where life was simple, good, and sometimes less complicated than the lives we live currently.
