“Holidays, bringing out the best in family dysfunction.” –Anonymous

We love and laugh, and sometimes groan and grimace, in these special opportunities to be with “family”…whether that be by blood or choosing.

It could be easy to miss the present being offered us by attention to remnants from the past.

Perhaps the present is the best gift we could give ourselves and others.

Carly Simon sang “These are the good old days.” What if she was right?

May your holiday celebrations will be made up of many individual moments of appreciation…of and in the present we are given.

Got a moment?

“We do not remember days; we remember moments.” –Cesare Pavese

“A happy life is just a string of happy moments. But most people don’t allow the happy moment, because they’re so busy trying to get a happy life.” –Abraham
