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.
