Saturday's Serious Note (on Sunday)- Holiday Family Connections

Just a quick note to everyone- please remember your family and friends that have been out of connection this holiday season. I usually don't like saying this just because it is around the holidays- I believe relationships need to be built, encouraged, and on a level ground all year long- but sometimes you just need that special mood to be able to kick things back into action. For example- say you're sorry to someone you fought with a while ago even if you're not wrong- just to settle things and get that friendship going again. Be persistent in trying to inspire that "scrooge" in your family to come join the others in the celebrations. Don't forget to tell your mom, grandpa, grandma, dad, children, sister, brother, cousins, aunts, uncles, etc. that you love them, send them a card, share a memory- even if some of those family members are never around the rest of the year. You just never know when you'll lose them and they'll never be around again.

If you have a difficult relationship with a family member- or had in the past- and are or was able to settle it through some small kind action- please share your perceptive thoughts.

Happy Holidays and Love spread to all!


  1. Thank you for this important reminder! At this time of year, it is easy to get lost in the hustle and bustle. Forgiveness and love are gifts that are uniquely individual and cannot be replaced by any "thing"!

  2. and in the hustle and bustle don't forget to share some kindness with people you don't know - hold the door for someone, give smiles!, wait patiently in lines. A tiny kindness from a stranger can turn around your whole outlook.
