Keeping Focused on What Is Important....
12/22/2006 12:00:00 AM LinkEvery morning news program I have been watching lately has been about the right holiday gifts, the right holiday food, and the right holiday outfits. This only reminds me that this season is not about all those things. Yes, I have bought a few things for my kids, relatives, and friends. I am not , however, stressed about getting the perfect gifts for them. I think people simply want to know that you love and value them during the holidays - it really matters very little what token you have chosen to show that love. What matters more is that you put actions behind that love. Calling your brother or friend you have only spoken to by e-mail lately will mean so much to them. A meaningful handwritten note will be cherished far longer than the $100 mixer you purchased for them. Keeping it simple is my motto for the holidays - that may be why I really still fully enjoy this season so much year after year! My way is not neccesarily the right way, but it certainly keeps me grounded in what's real and it is what works for me in my relationships. Enjoy!
