Keeping Christmas

My friend Tom Taylor pointed me toward the Poet Henry Van Dyke for some really inspirational thoughts (excerpted here) this holiday season:

  • “Are you willing to forget what you have done for other people, and to remember what other people have done for you”
  • “ ignore what the world owes you and to think what you owe the world”
  • “to see that men and women are just as real as you are, and try to look behind their faces to their hearts, hungry for joy”
  • “to close your book of complaints against the management of the universe, and look around you for a place where you can sow a fee seeds of happiness”

And with that, much joy, peace and confidence ahead in the new year – see you after the holidays!
