THIS CHRISTMAS

Mend
a quarrel.
Seek out a
forgotten friend.
Dismiss suspicion and
replace it with trust. Write
a love letter. Share some treasure.
Give a soft answer. Encourage youth.
Manifest your loyalty in word and deed.
Keep a promise. Find the time. Forgo a grudge.
Forgive an enemy. Listen. Apologize if you were
wrong. Try to understand. Flout envy. Examine your
demands on others. Think first of someone else. Appreciate.
Be kind; be gentle. Laugh a little. Laugh a little more. Deserve
confidence. Take up arms against malice. Decry complacency. Express
your gratitude. Go to church. Welcome a stranger. Gladden the
heart of a child. Take pleasure in the beauty and wonder of the earth.
Speak your love.
Speak it again.
Speak it still once again.
MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR.

(I didn't write this, I found it the other day and thought it was a good message. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year)


 "I am nothing special, of this I am sure. I am a common man with common thoughts and I've led a common life. There are no monuments dedicated to me and my name will soon be forgotten, but I've loved another with all my heart and soul, and to me , this has always been enough." ~Nicholas Sparks from The Notebook
