Christmas 2012: A Few Thoughts . . .

I heard an old Chinese proverb the other day that made a deep impact on me: "If there's food on the table then the family will have many problems to discuss. If there's no food on the table then there's only one problem." 

As a special mention to my fellow Canadians, while we constantly gripe about the weather and politicians and taxes - and I'm more guilty of it than most - take a moment to look at the world as a whole and realize that most of us are so incredibly blessed to be living at this time and in this place. Do keep on working hard - for yourself, your family, and your country - but also pause this Christmas to take stock of the many blessings you have!
