i hope he doesn't mind me sharing it:
-------------------

hi -

Good Christmas morning.

I hope you have a good day.

I cherish my gift.

for it's healing powers - it's really helped.

I went to church last night - and I thought about

what does Christmas signify - as I listened to the person preach -

I realized

in that Christmas is the celebration of the birth of Jesus,

- so - what then did Jesus bring - ?

the notion of good will to men - Hallelujah!

and so - at the birth of our religion - GOOD WILL TO MEN

a tradition of this - past down -

we may be human - and clearly we've seen what that means but

our holiday in December -

culminates a celebration of the birth of this person - this tradition too -

with gestures of good will - gifts -

love -

sharing -

- random kindnesses

and moving generosities of the heart.

It's a good feeling.

Peace,

Mark
