Thursday December 25, 2008 Christmas 2008
“I have always thought of Christmas time, when it has come round, as a good time; a kind, forgiving, charitable time; the only time I know of, in the long calendar of the year, when men and women seem by one consent to open their shut-up hearts freely, and to think of people below them as if they really were fellow passengers to the grave, and not another race of creatures bound on other journeys.
I appreciate you being a loyal JAM with Mike! reader in 2008. I have enjoyed writing for you, and reading your feedback, stories and quotes. Our life journeys are so amazing and I am privileged to be spending a couple moments with you each week. I hope you have been able to use the JAM messages to improve your day or to help you toward achieving meaningful change in your life.
Please be sure to take some time to enjoy your family and/or friends and the beauty of this holiday season.
“And the Grinch, with his Grinch-feet ice cold in the snow, stood puzzling and puzzling, how could it be so? It came without ribbons. It came without tags. It came without packages, boxes or bags. And he puzzled and puzzled ’till his puzzler was sore. Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn’t before. What if Christmas, he thought, doesn’t come from a store? What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more?”
