The Most Important Decoration

November 27, 2011

in the generous life

Most of us will be doing some decorating for the Christmas holidays.  May I suggest a bit of restraint?  Start with the simplest, most basic of decorations and then add as you have the time and energy.  If you don’t get everything set out, no harm done.

Most importantly ~ decorate your face with a smile.  Be warm and patient with your family.  (It helps to imagine what kind of memories you are making for them.)

Everytime you smile at someone, it is an action of love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing.  Mother Teresa

A friend of mine recommended this book – Anger – Handling a Powerful Emotion in a Healthy Way (aff link) And, of course, you can’t go wrong with Gary Chapman


Be generous! Lori <><

Lori, you’re so right. This time of year can bring out the Christ in us or the Scrooge. Doing exactly what you said will ensure our smile and actions reflect the first and not the latter.
