Holiday Greetings!

 

 

“It doesn't take a holiday season to be present and aware. Rather than buy presents my suggestion is to be present. My suggestion is that rather going out and  looking at lights to be the light. Rather than eating food to donate food, make a positive impact

in someone's life. To be right here and right now. The most precious gift that you can give to anyone is the most valuable currency that you have. And that is your time.

 

My suggestion is ,not only during this holiday season but in every season, that you be

present and aware and be with that person. When you spend your time on them they're more precious and special than anything else in the world.”
