All I Want for Christmas Is…

Like many people I find myself waxing a bit philosophic during the holidays.  I don’t know if it’s the holiday spirit, the need to focus on others while buying gifts, or the preponderance of alcohol that seems inevitable with the cold weather and parties, but either way it got me to thinking.

The greatest gift we can give or receive at this or any time of the year is Kindness.  So be kind.

Be kind when it’s inconvenient.

Be kind when not called for.

Be kind to those you love.

Be kind to those you don’t.

Be kind and expect nothing in return.

Be kind because you can.

Share the gift of Kindness freely and without reservation.  You never know what long-reaching and lasting effects even the simplest act of kindness can generate.  It might brighten someone’s day.  It might just save someone’s life.  It might provide them with something they need that they’d otherwise have to go without.  Do it without analyzing it.  Do it without counting the cost.  Do it with an open heart.

Like those eminent sages, Bill S. Preston and Ted “Theodore” Logan, once told us, “Be excellent to each other”.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you all.
