“Very little is needed to make a happy life; it is all within yourself, in your way of thinking.” ― Marcus Aurelius
Is this the most wonderful time of the year? I don’t know. I know that every season has value. The value of this season lies within. Yes, it’s cold unless you travel for warmth. But, we spend this season within:
The arms of our loved ones
I will be grateful for these holidays although I’m missing some very essential people.
I will be mindful during these holidays because I know that I will not live forever.
“Don’t wait until everything is just right. It will never be perfect. There will always be challenges, obstacles and less than perfect conditions. So what… Get started now. With each step you take, you will grow stronger and stronger, more and more skilled, more and more self-confident and more and more successful. Mark Victor Hansen
I will be present during these holidays because I know every day is a personal gift. I use and cherish these gifts. I savor every food. I touch the hands and hearts of my love ones. My brother taught me that life is crucial. I face everyday with new eyes. I want to see the world around me with the eyes of a child but the wisdom of the elderly. I will cherish life. I will cherish everyday. It will not be in vain.
Matthew 2:11 And when they had come into the house, they saw the young Child with Mary His mother, and fell down and worshiped Him. And when they had opened their treasures, they presented gifts to Him: gold, frankincense, and myrrh.
