• The holidays should be about perspective

    As I get older, I try to take time at the holidays to put things in perspective.

    With all the things which pull at us from all sides, a little quiet time never hurts.

    I?m not talking about remembering the true meaning of Christmas. Regardless of how you feel about it, it?s undeniable - at least here in the Bible belt - that there are plenty of things to remind us about that.

    No, I?ve never had a problem with that.

    My problem has always been, and continues to be, focusing on the petty problems I face in day-to-day living.
