May you have the chance to love another, to serve another, to help another grow.
May you find beauty in life without blinding yourself to the darkness where sadness and need hold sway.
May you heal the wounds that you have caused and forgive those wounds that you have received.
May you touch another life in a way that changes it for the better.
This is Christmas, the one time of year when we turn our hearts toward the act of giving. However you celebrate, whatever you believe, may you do your part to keep that legacy alive. It is the best of who we are, and the measure of who we can be.
Take care, my friends. It is a gift to be alive.
