“Twas the night before Christmas . . .”

Christmas Eve! Such a special night. I just finished watching IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE. It is one of my all time favorite Christmas movies – even though I find myself crying through parts of it. Most of the tears are tears of joy. It is such an uplifting movie with a great message. I like that it shows that it isn’t the folks with money and power that influence our lives – but everyone we come in contact with. Everyone makes a difference in some way in the lives of others. It is a good thing to remember – not only on Christmas Eve. I like Clarence the Angel’s message written in the copy of Tom Sawyer, “Remember no man is a failure who has friends.” As you spend the holidays with your friends and family – remember how blessed you are – it isn’t about the material gifts. The real gift is the time you can spend with family and friends.

I should probably close before I get too sappy. I truly wish you all a wonderful Christmas! Take care and be careful out there and remember Christmas Cheer (aka drinking) and Driving don’t mix. 🙂

Merry Christmas – Everyone!

PS – I still am “a little” excited to see what Santa has brought me … 🙂
