Snowflake #MerrySMChristmas

Ho Ho Ho!
It's that time of the year to paint the town red, green, white & gold.
Oh silly, go and prepare your Christmas list now,
Who knows, your Secret Santa might just grant it for you.
Clothes. Shoes. Bags.---Of all shades, shapes & sizes.
SM's definitely got it all for you!
Whatever the season, whatever the reason,
With SM, you'll never go home empty handed.
Oh, MerrySMChristmas is my favorite time of the year!
It's not 'cause of the gifts I get or wish I'd receive.
(Well, it's an added perk of course!)
But it's more of the heart-warming spirit that comes alive in each one of us.
The sounds, the lights & the Christmas vibe just makes me fall in love all over again!

As this is the jolliest and most festive time of the year,
Do make sure that you dress to impress.
After all, it's not every time you can celebrate White Christmas alright!
December is definitely the month of celebrations!
There's just so much to be thankful for like organizations such as SM Cares.
They make the needy feel like they're still part of a family,
They make the homeless feel they're sheltered.
SM Cares’ Bears of Joy 
'Tis the season to be truly jolly,
And 'tis the season to remember to give back.
Yes, Christmas is a time of extravagance and for that most needed vacation,
But let's remember: It's not just a "Me" time, but a "We" time!
'Tis the time to share what we have,
'Tis the time to make everyone feel loved.
Just like how SM fed and sheltered those who were affected by Yolanda.
Let's celebrate relationships which ended, that started and is yet to flourish.
As we turn over a new leaf in our crazy lives,
Let's look back at our past & cherish the present as these shape our future.
Seasons come and go but like a Snowflake, no two are alike.
Life doesn't always go your way.
You lose people you love the most.
You fail to achieve what you desire.
You simply fall behind expectations.
There will always be those 'What Ifs' & 'What Could Have Beens'.
Choices were made. Priorities were chosen. Life just happened!
No matter how much of a roller coaster ride we've had,
Let's remember that our journey is as important as our destination.

In my almost 365 days,
I have laughed and cried.
I have failed and learned.
I have lost and found.
But at the end of day,
What's really matters most is---
Believing that I can contribute so much more, 
As I grow a year wiser & stronger!
