Thanks for using the story of kindness I sent you. It still brings a tear to my eyes when I read it. My thoughts of Christmas is to thank all those who have helped me throughout the year. You, my friend, are at the top of that list. You have shared so much with me and have allowed me to express my sentiments on many issues that I feel passionate about. You are a very good friend. But I also believe Christmas is about giving to others as our Lord has given to us. Christmas should be remembered that Christ came to earth, born of mortal flesh to save us all from our sins. We, in turn, should share some of that love for those who have less, who often don't even have enough money to put food on the Christmas table for their families. I believe we should all do what we can to help those who need it, as Lord has done for us. Christmas is also a time to remember our families, and the blessings family brings - love, kindness, sharing and the need to have these feelings returned. It is also the time we share with our friends and other loved ones and remember all those who have given a little bit of themselves to help enrich our lives in ways we would not know if they weren't in our lives. Life is so short. It is very easy to forget our blessings, especially during the hustle and bustle of daily life. We often don't think about all the blessings that we have been give by our Heavenly Father. This time of year brings all of that out. It is a time to remember our Saviors birth, the reason for his coming and be thankful for all that we have. And while I talking about gratitude, let me say just how thankful I am for you. This year you have been especially gracious with your time and attention. You and Maribel have remembered me and my family with your warm thoughts and prayers, and for that I will never be able to say thank you enough. But I promise I'Il try. May God bless you always, and I wish for you and yours a very Merry Christmas. Your friend, always, Gerry Garrison Auburn, WA Life is short. Forgive quickly. Kiss slowly. Love truly. Laugh uncontrollably, and never regret anything that made you smile.
