Someone sent this to me and it sums up some of the things we often need to be reminded of – well, I know I do. Gift suggestions for this holiday season:
To your enemy – forgiveness
To an opponent – tolerance
To a friend – your heart
To a customer – service
To all – charity
To every child – a good example
To yourself – respect
Today I’m enjoying Christmas with my family. We’re eating lots of food we shouldn’t, drinking eggnog and beer, probably playing games and doing puzzles, sitting by the fire, looking out of the window at the snow, fighting, arguing, and throwing things – wait, I forgot to read that list above – back to eating again, the grandbaby is crying, the cat is chasing the dog (yes, I know, odd house), someone is complaining that they didn’t get what they want, and Dad is taking a nap on the couch. Yes, it’s definitely our family and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
I hope you get to go some of the very same things with your family too – enjoy the holiday!
I’m the one in the middle 🙂
