Relax and Remember

This week I’ve heard the desperation in the voices of coworkers feeling pressured by all that needs to be done before planes leave and relatives arrive.

This is the perfect time to remember a familiar quote:

"Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take,
but by the moments that take our breath away.”

If we keep rushing about, our minds solely focused on cleaning, shopping, wrapping, and cooking, those breathtaking moments will slip by without our notice.

Look into the faces of your children as they make gingerbread houses
or write their letters to Santa.

Watch your family members eye the gifts they hold with anticipation on their faces.

When you stand under the mistletoe reflect on all of the reasons
why that is the person you want to kiss more than anyone else in the world.

Open your eyes, settle your nerves, and make the end of 2008
the most memorable time of the year.

Have a joyous holiday!
