A Seasonal Thought

The transition point in our calendar from one year to the next always causes me to stop and ponder, and this year it's how we view time itself that actually has me wondering. What if we knew next year was all we had? There would be no more. How would we act? On the contrary, what if we realized that every action we took would be felt by the generations ahead of us? What if we, all people, everywhere, understood that every moment could be our last and we used that moment for the children yet to come?

What if I could hold that thought and act on it every day?

That's all I want for Christmas! And I wish the same for all of you. May all of us have the wisdom, patience and peace to live in the moment in service of the future.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
