Chapter 12, Page 12, Book 17

Every time a bell rings an angel get his wings...

Each day comes bearing its own gifts. Untie the ribbons.

Ruth Ann Schabacker

December 12th

To give and not expect return, that is what lies at the heart of love.

Oscar Wilde

The closer we move toward Christmas Day the higher the stress level can become.  One gift that can be easily give by a cheerful choice: 

We can respond with kindness.  No matter the moment or the person, we can smile or speak a soft word or do a kind deed.

Never miss the chance to spread kindness everywhere you go.  Words of kindness make a person see the sunshine even when the sun is not shinning.  

Kindness and consideration are often the most valuable Christmas gifts one can give—to friends, family and strangers alike.

God grant you the light in Christmas which is faith;
the warmth of Christmas, which is love;
the radiance of Christmas, which is purity;
the righteousness of Christmas, which is justice;
the belief in Christmas, which is truth…

Wilda English

Untie the ribbons…

Kindness is indeed a great gift to give, especially this time of year when like you said a lot of people are feeling the stress of getting everything done for Christmas. A smile or a word of encouragement go a long way to be kind to someone.
