Merry Christmas! I hope you've had a wonderful day with those you love. Today was a special day in so many ways. Our family got together and as usual, we had a great time with. This won't be a regular, thought-provoking post. There's plenty of time for that. I just wanted to chime in briefly to say Merry Christmas to each of you. I also realize that many of you don't celebrate Christmas so let me say Happy Holidays. Either way, I hope you've had a great season. And I hope you've had the chance to spend some quality time with your families.
You'll hear more in the coming days about how I spent this Christmas Day but for now I'll just say it was quite memorable. I write so much about creating lasting memories and today was one of those days. I feel specially blessed to have the family that I do. I'm quite aware that not everyone has a similar privilege so I'm just thankful and grateful to be surrounded by those that mean the most to me at the most wonderful time of the year.
Today was a day to put your love into action. I hope you went beyond the call of duty and got an A for effort. It's not about how much money you spend - it's the fact that you consider your kids important enough to demonstrate your love for them in tangible ways. Love is a noun and also a verb. Verb suggests action so I hope you put your love into action today.
The holiday season is a special time of the year. Our kids will remember the events of this day for years to come. I hope that you helped them to have a pleasant, memorable time. There is so much that lies ahead in their lives. So I hope you're helping to create special, long-lasting memories for them.
I wish for you and yours all the best for the remainder of the season.
The Upbeat Dad
