Have a Wonderful Day!

Today is Christmas! Remember the American singer and film actor, Bing Crosby (1904-1977)? He has been quoted as saying: “Unless we make Christmas an occasion to share our blessings, all the snow in Alaska won't make it 'white'." I always enjoyed hearing Bing sing White Christmas. Maybe because I spent the first 16 years of my life in Canada and we always (repeat ALWAYS) had a white Christmas—from Jack Frost’s etchings on our window panes to mountains of snow. And I mean mountains of snow. Sometimes it drifted against the front door so it was a struggle to open it; sometimes it mounded higher than my father was tall on both sides of our long driveway. Whatever your belief system and whether or not you celebrate Christmas per se, I wish you the best 24 hours of your life. Make today a time to share your blessings—the reason for the season. We all have blessings and memories of many others. And some of you will have a white Christmas . . . Ah, the childhood memories. Some good. Some bad. Some happy. Some sad.
Some cold. Some beyond cold, truth be told. But always, always—white!
