Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! Whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa or just having the day off (hopefully you have the day off), I sincerely hope that you have a fantastic day with your friends, family and/ or loved ones.
Christmas, like most holidays in the US (especially), has become largely a way to stimulate the economy with massive consumerism. But, the true meaning of the day is built around the idea of love, compassion and caring for others. In that spirit, I wish all of you a fantastic day.
Days like today should remind us of our blessings- no matter how small they may seem. I am blessed to be able to share this day with my loved ones. My crash in April put me a lot closer to not being able to enjoy this day than I ever care to get again. The fact that I am well enough to be able to complain about not being able to ride as often as I would like is a blessing that I do not take for granted. I am also blessed to have the friends in my life that I do- and that includes you.
Enjoy the day and remember the little things that build into the blessings in your life. They are there, even if they seem hard to find. I promise.
