One good deed begets another, seeds of kindness, sown in summer, blooms like Spring in mid December… by the late and great Mr. Al Jarreau.
So here we are again, just 4 days from opening our prezzies!
You know, I fail to understand why so many of us go a little crazy at Christmas, we spend more than we earn, eat more than we should, drink liquids that we would not normally consider, spend time with people we rarely ever see or hear from or even like, but it is the most wonderful time of the year!
The missing jigsaw from the Christmas puzzle, is usually that man called Jesus Christ, who is or should be the main event of the evening.
As the title says, one good turn deserves another – so it is the coveted law of reciprocation. The do unto others as you would be done by mantra.
Now there will be those who will always take, and then there will be those that will always give, and then there are those in the middle that will give and take, usually without thinking.
So, as we approach the most wonderful time of the year, have in the back of your mind the following….
- Can you be as gregarious during the rest of the year as you are during the festive season?
- Are you prepared to hook up with someone you rarely see, as you are prepared to tolerate during the holiday season?
- Will you focus more on the reason for the celebration Mr. JC, or be unable to wait to get your hands on that prezzie without a moment of reflection?
- and finally, will you return the kindness shown to you at this time of the year during the remainder of 2018, or will you just forget such kindness once the occasion is over?
So I will take this opportunity to wish you and yours a rich, loving, peaceful and a very Merry Christmas!!
