The best Christmas card message in my mailbox

 A Christmas Wish…

 May we break down boundaries, tear down walls, and build on the fountain of goodness inside each of us. May we look past differences, gain understanding, and embrace acceptance. May we reach out to each other rather than resist. May we be better stewards of the earth, protecting and replenishing the beauties of nature. May we practice gratitude for all we have, rather than complain about our needs. May we seek cures for the sick, help for the hungry, and love for the lonely. May we share our talents, give our time, and teach our children. May we hold hope for the future very tenderly in our hearts and do all we can to build for the bright tomorrows. And may we love with our whole hearts, for that's the only way to love.

 May your heart be filled with the spirit of the season…
