Best Wishes for a Blessed Christmas and Happy Hanukkah

As Christians gear up for Christmas Eve and Jewish friends finish up their celebrations of Hanukkah, I wanted to extend my best wishes for a memorable holiday season.

With all of the turmoil in the world - I do not need to remind you of the long list of those who are being naughty around the globe - this is a good time to re-focus our minds and hearts on the spirit of Christmas.  Lots of gifts will be exchanged in the next few days.  The best gifts are those of time and presence - being truly present with the family and friends we will visit visit over the holidays.

You can set the tone by talking about hopeful and uplifting things and by being mindful of small opportunities to be a blessing - a smile, lending a hand with the dishes, taking out the trash, telling stories and playing games.

Make some memories this Christmas season.
