Embrace Christmas

Joan Winmill Brown said: "Christmas! The very word brings joy to our hearts. No matter how we may dread the rush, the long Christmas lists for gifts and cards to be bought and given -- when Christmas Day comes there is still the same warm feeling we had as children, the same warmth that enfolds our hearts and our homes."

That warm feeling we had as children is what we all need to remember when we get caught up in the frenzy of the "must do" that characterizes much of the holiday season.

We must decorate the yard. We must put up the Christmas tree. We must decorate the house. We must buy the presents and wrap them. We must attend the holiday parties. Must ... must ... must. The list seems endless at times, doesn't it?

Takeaway Truth

Don't dread -- anything. With every day that passes and every "must do," rejoice. Life is short. You don't want to look back and wish you had enjoyed it more.
