Hallmark Christmas Movies

This past week, I've been watching Christmas movies on the Hallmark Channel. Some are good, some not. Regardless, they make me feel good. That's what's important. To me, it's uplifting. They remind me of taking things in life in a positive way. Though very difficult at times, most of the time even, there's always some good to focusing on the good while we're traveling through life. We're still alive, aren't we? What matters is we still have the people we love. That's how I see it. Those people who truly love you will always be there for you, regardless. I don't have too many of those. But, with those I do have, I know for a fact that they will always be there for me. I don't want to lose any one of them from the list. I want to add more to the list. They are my family. Jim, for sure, has been and will always be on my list. Jim is my family. Eventually, my family will think of Jim as family, too. I would like to think of my life as a Hallmark movie. I don't know the ending. I have gone through a lot of ups and downs of life. There will be more, certainly. I have a feeling things are leading up to the climax. If I can survive it, the good ending will come. I have hope. I hope. I believe. On this Christmas season, I just know that God is watching over my family and me. I thank God for my family and what I have now.


  1. Santa Claus The Movie, is one of my earliest Christmas movie memories. I used to think it was a true story.

    The Family Stone is a more recent holiday movie that warms my cockles.

  2. I love the Family Stone too. Another great one is "Home for the Holidays". Congratulations on having a family that you love. Merry Christmas!

  3. I love the one with the dead soldier coming back to visit his family. I don't remember the name. I feel so much for the soldiers.

  4. T, you are so right. Life is fulfilled as long as we have loved ones in it.

    My annual Christmas movie tradition is "It's a Wonderful Life". I think it very well exemplifies the thoughts you've listed above.

    BTW, I can NEVER watch that movie without tearing up at the end when George Bailey opens the Bible and reads Clarence's note thanking him for his wings. I know, I'm a sap. :-)
