by Robert Anthony

It's the most wonderful time of the year! With Christmas just hours away, it's time to show your appreciation for all that you have -- even the little things. We're not talking about that Xbox One you asked for this Christmas, or the check your grandmother gave you.

We're talking about life itself. Often times, we're going through the motions, letting each day so quickly pass us by, that we forget to appreciate and cherish all that we have. This holiday, let's remember to take nothing for granted. It's time to spread the love!

Below are the 25 photos that will make you appreciate the little things in life this Christmas. From fathers coming home from Afghanistan to see their children for the first time, to precious little kittens being saved from arson fires, it's all here. Check them out below. Merry Christmas to all!
