Here’s Something to Think About

The Christmas and New Year’s Holidays are literally right around the corner.
 

It’s that time of year where we rush around trying to cram 52 weeks of caring and happiness into the 10 days between December 24th and January 2nd.

Why not try to spread your caring and happiness out over the course of the year? I think you’ll be pleased with the results.

Every year you make a promise to yourself to be better the next year but you repeat the same mistakes year after year.

You tell yourself that, “things have to change.” Change is hard. Things don’t have to change; you have to change!

Enjoy the time you spend with those who mean the most to you. It’s also a time to remember those who meant so much to us who are still in our hearts and minds but no longer at our holiday table. Time is something you can never create more of or have enough of; it disappears way too fast. Use it wisely.

My wife Paula and I and our family want to wish all of you the happiest and healthiest holiday you can have. This is that special time of year when we take stock of all of the good and important things in our lives and celebrate them with family and friends. Wouldn’t we all be a little bit better if we did this more often? I think so.

I am blessed with the family I have and the life that God has given me the opportunity to choose to live. My wish for you is for you to choose to live the life that allows you to feel as good and as grateful as I feel. But remember, you must “choose” to make it so.

There will be no Monday Morning Wake Up Calls on Dec. 25th or January 1st. I want you to spend every available minute celebrating and enjoying your life with those who are most important to you. Let’s all kick back and reflect on our lives and our blessings.
