A Simple Gift
December 23rd, 2014 2:49 PM

During the hectic and stressful holiday season, we tend to forget the joy of leading a more simple life.  In this era of vast technology, we are usually looking for the newest "gadget" that will make our lives more convenient or our business more successful.  We must have that latest I-phone, I-pad, computer, e-reader, or whatever device has just come on the market.  But once we begin to appreciate how much we already have, we can begin to feel what is truly essential for our happiness.

Many people believe simplicity implies doing without.   But on the contrary, true simplicity means that we can be content and grateful, ready to give more of ourselves.  The gift of "time" is something the age of technology has robbed us of; it can mean so much and it costs so little. 

To those less fortunate this holiday season, give a simple gift of love and compassion; provide a meal, take flowers, have a heartfelt conversation, or offer to help in some way.  Everyone has the ability to give of themselves.

Simple gifts can elevate ordinary moments and change dreary lives.  This holiday season, let us search our hearts and offer that simple gift to someone yearning to be touched by it.   By doing so, you will have a very MERRY CHRISTMAS! 

Allen and I wish you a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS!!
