It is now mid-December and we are all aware
that Christmas is near. We all look forward to
this time of the year in our own special way
and we always look forward to lovely things
and instances that would add joy to our
I am not asking for rich, expensive gifts,
either for family or friends. I only ask
that each one of you have joyful gatherings
with family and friends all around you.
May the carols you sing inspire you with
their old familar sounds. May you each
experience quiet moments in your heart
at Christmas as you celebrate this
joyful time. I pray for friends to send their
best that you might know they care. I
also ask for peace and love and hope
and joy for you and that God hears your
prayer ... always.
May the gift of God's love touch you and
your family this holiday season.
Life is Best for those who want to Live it,
Life is Difficult for those who want to Analyze it,
Life is Worst for those who want to Critize it,
Our Attitude Defines Life ...
Enjoy your life, Laugh so hard that even
Sorrow Smiles at You,
Live well so well, that even Death love to
see you Alive, Fight so hard that even
Fate accepts its Defeat.
It will soon be "Thanksgiving" so as you enjoy
the day with family and friends be grateful and
kind to all you meet. Giving thanks and expressing
gratitude are very important. True abundance
begins with gratitude and thankfulness. Being
thankful focuses our attention on the things we
do have, and helps those things to grow.
Be grateful for what you have. Nuture the good
things in your life. Appreciate them.
May God give us a thankful heart so that we
can become a whole person, not just gifted
with intellect that can understand, but with heart
that truly cares and loves.

how good it is back at home. I just had a short spell away
from home and it was refreshing indeed.... especially as
I have not travelled for almost two years now. I just
got back and a friend sent me this and I thought that
I would share this thoughts with you too ...
In order to create good relationships ...
With your mind,
think about what you have to learn from others:
With your eyes,
look into good qualities of others
With your words,
recognise, value and appreciate thier accomplishments,
With your actions,
co-operate and do something for others.
In dwelling, live close to the ground. In thinking, keep
to the simple. In conflict, be fairand generous. In
governing, don't try to control. In work, do what you
enjoy, In family life, be completely present....Lao Tzu.
Happy Halloween to you with lots and lots of Hugs!
