Christmas gift suggestions: To your enemy, forgiveness. To an opponent, tolerance, To a friend, your heart. To a customer, service. To all, charity, To every child, a good example. To yourself, respect.
I want to add in my own to that: To others, non-judgement and more giving, To self, stop being your own worst critique but be your best friend/support. To spouses, quit trying to change them to be their past or future potential, but give your whole acceptance exactly as they are in this present moment. To little kids, more gentleness and your complete attention. To the elderly, more respect and a listening ear to their wisdom. To God, giving up our will to do his will, which in return will give us so much more than we could fathom.
We take a break from our Sunday family photos in the winter, because I don’t have the heart to make them stand outside in the cold but it was so warm today! Happy Sunday, friends!
