Half Way Through December

Just wanted to share a lovely little encounter to give you a smile in the midst of the chaos of the season. The other day I got an email from a friend saying it was her mother’s birthday. I immediately picked up my phone to wish her a lovely and happy birthday. She turned 95 the other day and I thought to myself that during this time of year it is hard to keep track of birthdays unless it is family. But anyway, at 95 years old she remembered my birthday was on October 24th and I was really impressed.

I remember when I was a kid and it was a milestone to live past 70. Now people are in there 90’s and even hundreds going strong with better memories then ever.  Remember Willard Scott reading off all the Smuckers birthdays on The today show?

Just a little reminder to enjoy the holiday season, don’t let it stress you out, and try and take pleasure away from making other people around you happy.
