Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year

“And the Grinch, with his Grinch-feet ice cold in the snow, stood puzzling, how could it be so? It came without ribbons. It came without tags. It came without packages, boxes or bags. And he puzzled and puzzled ‘till his puzzler was sore. Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn’t before. What if Christmas, he thought, doesn’t come from the store. What if Christmas perhaps, means a little bit more…"

My gift to you this Christmas is to remind you that Christmas - and life, is not just about 'things' but 'people' and 'feelings'.
Open your hearts as well as the other gifts you receive this Christmas. Know that the good you do for others is good you do for yourself.

Remember that this is a time of year to remember your family and friends, to spend quality time with your loved ones.
Presents are nice but the best present you can give anyone is your presence.

Go visit someone you've not seen in a while or give them a call.  Just to let them know you're thinking of them and care. It's a simple gesture but means so much to those who might not have family or friends around at this time of you.

You are the lucky ones, if you have shelter, light, heat, internet and food to eat, surrounded by those that might drive you nuts but you love all the same.  Stop thinking about what you want to buy in the sales! Instead donate to charity or feed and clothe the homeless.  Be grateful for what you DO have and make a difference to someone who isn't so fortunate.

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and have a Wonderful New Year.

Wishing you more Love, Peace, Hope and Happiness for the New Year!

Bobby :-)

P.S. I'd like to remind you about the film "Joyeux Noël". Watch it if you've not seen it before.
Peace and Goodwill to all mankind!

Joyeux Noël - Peace One Day

On Christmas Eve in 1914 during the bloody World War I, the Germans, French, and Scottish soldiers on the front-line called an informal and unauthorised truce.  With the other men, who they tried to kill every day because they were ordered and told to shoot at them.
They peacefully met each other in No Man's Land to share a moment to get to know the men who lived on the opposite side, even though they were aware that their superiors would not tolerate it, they did what they felt was right and acceptable.

It became a true lesson of humanity, a real and heartfelt message of brotherhood and goodwill to ALL mankind, that may have been forgotten by many.

Remember your fellow man today and every day as you go about your life and business and know that they are no different to you, with the same hopes and fears for a better life.  Put down your weapons, do what is right and all will be well.

Joyeux Noël,
