Merry Christmas to All…More or Less

Cookies...check! Note to Santa...check! Glass of milk...check! Bottle of ale...well, I guess delivering presents all over the world is thirsty work!

Merry Christmas to All!

May 2013 bring:

More peace

Less war

More joy

Less sorrow

More love

Less hate

More hope

Less despair

More people reaching out to help others

Less people reaching the end of their rope

More parents participating positively with their children

Less children living without basic necessities

Perhaps you wonder what you can do…or if what you do can really make a difference.

Have you seen “It’s A Wonderful Life“? In it, George Bailey asked that exact question:

Remember what the Pencilmaker told the pencil before he put it in the box: Everything you do will leave a mark!

Do something to help someone else everyday…even if it is just a smile or kind word. Read a story to a young child. Listen to a teenager. Call an elderly relative or friend. Make the mark you leave a positive one.

I wish you all a beautiful holiday and a Happy, Healthy, Joyous and Successful New Year!

  1. Lovely post — may you have a wonderful day and a new year that brings all you could dream of!

    (p.s. When I was a child, I was told that Santa doesn’t like milk, so I always left a note that there was a bottle of ginger ale in the fridge. 😉 )

    • That is so funny, Milka! When my kids were a little older and my oldest son had come home from college, I thought it was time to do without the ‘traditional’ letter to Santa. I had to think again when I came down in the morning, and there, to my surprise, was the letter from Santa…telling how disappointed he was to have missed a letter from us. My son had obvously felt that this was an important tradition and one that we should continue forever.:) Kids know what is important to them, don’t they?:)
