The Christmas holiday season is a wonderful time of year for me. Great memories, beautiful music, plays, concerts and light shows, as well good times shared with friends and family, good tidings, all contribute to this special of season . I realize , though, that it is not so special for many among us. Those with dark memories, depression and alone find the season particularly difficult since so much festivity around them serves to remind them of their situation. So, it seems to me, that an opportunity exists for all of us who are fortunate. Firstly, we can acknowledge our many blessings and be grateful for them. Secondly, we can reach out to those who are not so fortunate to see how we can help. These two actions, when taken can lead to a rich life. Here is wishing you A Merry Christmas, A Happy Hanukkah, and all the best for 2019.
