Names and Faces that Warm Our Spirits
Written on December 22
Merriest of Greetings to You,
I just got off the phone with a customer, and we both took turns answering the question, “Are you ready for the holidays?” I am sorry to report that both of us said, “No. Still too much work to do.”
It is a sad situation when we don’t have time to enjoy the times leading up to the actual friends and family events unfolding this weekend and through the next week. Oh, well. Not much I can do about that now except to find moments of anticipation and readiness in between the ever-present work.
I always think of you, our friends and colleagues, during this time of the year. Many of your names and faces come into my mind and heart. I am so thankful for those of you who have added yourselves to the long list of ambassadors – bright lights- for our mission. Wendy, Ashley, Daniel, Shealy, Tammi and I take time to talk about you who have encouraged our spirits and helped others to see a bright future.
My simple suggestion is to take time to find quiet moments to enjoy and thank those whose spirits and hearts need warming. Tell them what they mean to you. This is especially important since many are people you see so infrequently.
May this holiday season bring you joy and meaning amidst all of the noise.
