Tough Holiday Times?

Many people go to so much trouble to decorate their homes for the holidays.  We were enchanted with what we saw on our way home from Orange County last night where we visited with my in-laws, who are very special people.

But if we could put some of that willingness to cause a good and happy effect on others in more ways than beautiful and elaborate Christmas lights, the Earth would change over night.

What are the real rewards of a good life?  Money? Homes? Possessions?  60 or 70 or 80 years of accumulating stuff and then what?

I believe that the real rewards, and the best things you can offer others, are understanding, affinity, caring, compassion, positive support and real help.  To contribute to someone becoming more able and less affected by the difficulties of this Earth -- and there are some legitimate concerns at this time even surpassing the sometimes negative feelings and worries around  the holidays -- would be the best thing I could do for those I care about.  What do you think?

I am blessed. 
Wishing you all a very peaceful and healthy and happy holiday season.
