Merry Christmas

From my family to yours, we wish you a safe and happy Christmas.

As you spend this season with family and friends, may your celebrations be joyous and your time together be uplifting.

May you receive the gifts given to you well and even more so seek to give well to others.  For it is, truly, better to give than to receive.

Regardless of the needs in your life, remember others whose needs are even greater than yours or whose burdens may be heavier than yours.  So, despite our circumstances, we are indeed the blessed ones on this earth.

Yes, this is the season to give and to love and to share, but this year, let’s extend those sentiments—and the actions they produce—throughout the year.  If we do so, we’ll keep the Christmas spirit alive in us—and those around us.

Merry Christmas!
