Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays

I'd like to wish you the best for the holidays, however and whatever you celebrate. There is a lot wrong with the world and our country, but there also is a real requirement to stop and be pleased with being alive, if nothing else. Family and friends outweigh a lot of things in this world and appreciating having them is good for us. Those who can afford to help out those with little enrich all of us and themselves. Whatever jerks make the news, there are millions of small kindnesses each day done by those with no desire for more than to have been kind and thoughtful.

I thank each of you for the ordinary goodness that keeps us going each day in the face of the ordinary and extraordinary travails of daily life.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you, too, Chuck! Even though so many people have less this year, I'm sure special care will still be given to help those who have less.
