As we prepare to say good-bye to what was a very difficult year for most of us, many people will find it a challenge to enjoy the holiday season. With all we have endured, who could blame one for turning into a scrooge and saying, "Bah, humbug."
But, if we see life as half empty rather than half full, we will always have a reason to be sad and the holiday season will only exacerbate this empty feeling.
Permit me, if you will, to look at this season as more than just a holiday. This is the time of the year that we need to celebrate the traditions that bring out the best in us. We need to be kind to each other and to reflect upon our greater good. We are here for a larger purpose.
Goodwill is a quality of our humanity and we should try to keep the meaning of the season in our hearts all year long.
To that end, we wish you and your family all the best this holiday season. We are truly thankful for your business. Together, we will find the opportunities and solutions to fill our glasses to the brim in the coming New Year.
