To everyone celebrating, Merry Christmas. To those of you who aren’t if you’re getting a break during this holidays, hope you enjoy the time off over the holidays and have a restful break. During this, the most stressful time of the year, remember that self-care is just as important as fulfilling the needs of everyone around.
In the midst of the storm we all know as Christmas don’t’ forget to celebrate the Joys of the season
Deeper relationships with family and friends
Greater joy and satisfaction in everything you do
“Blessed is the season which engages the whole world in a conspiracy of love.”
~Hamilton Wright Mabie
“Christmas gift suggestions: to your enemy, forgiveness. To an opponent, tolerance. To a friend, your heart. To a customer, service. To all, charity. To every child, a good example. To yourself, respect.”
“Instead of being a time of unusual behavior, Christmas is perhaps the only time in the year when people can obey their natural impulses and express their true sentiments without feeling self-conscious and, perhaps, foolish. Christmas, in short, is about the only chance a man has to be himself.”
~Francis C. Farley
“What is Christmas? It is tenderness for the past, courage for the present, hope for the future. It is a fervent wish that every cup may overflow with blessings rich and eternal and that every path may lead to peace.”
~Agnes M. Pharo
