It has been fun sharing all these years despite how easily people take any of this too serious. Enjoy your families and try to bring kindness and compassion in this cold selfish world. Christmas celebrates a birth and hope, and despite the cynicism in America, tonight I saw the joy of Grandchildren opening presents and enjoying family with nothing but positive thoughts.

That he is.......when Bob was sick, he was there. We are all alone from the moment of birth, and we most certainly leave this world alone, but the journey.......priceless. If you are fortunate to have made good friends and have shared your life with your family, you may be alone at any time, but you will never really be alone. A bike ride in nature reminds you of how all of us are connected and how beautiful this world is. This Christmas can bring all kinds of emotions.
Sadly, my wife went to our neighbors house to enjoy Christmas Eve with their family. I am feeling too weak, and the grandson is still on my chit list, so to avoid confrontation, everybody understands why I do not attend. While the Christmas party was happening, a young man in his early twenties tells his companion he is going to kill himself and wades into the river, as his friend calls the fire department. So the Christmas party observed the fire engines, the rescue boat and police extract this man from the water and took him by ambulance to the hospital for exposure. At some time in that person's life he was somebody's child, and probably the holidays bring pain which he feels hopeless. The key in life is to understand that from the moment we are born to the time we leave this world there are NO guarantees for happiness. That is something that a wise man finds within. I will give an update on the young man when I hear more, but having fallen through ice, wading into an ice filled river is not a way to leave this world.
