monday motivation – loving others

 “My idea of Christmas, whether old-fashioned or modern, is very simple: loving others. Come to think of it, why do we have to wait for Christmas to do that?” ~ Bob Hope

I don’t know about you, but the holidays should be simple and our motivation should be about loving others.  As my Father loves to say as Bob Hope said, “Why do we have to wait for Christmas?”

Yesterday, I went to a concert of Handel’s Messiah in Irvington.  I sat there and listened to the beautiful voices and thought about love and how the holidays can be sad for some and joyful for others.  We can each find motivation in doing something simple to show our love.  Love your neighbor, your family, a friend or even a creature today and feel your heart grow.  What sorts of old-fashioned or modern ways do you show love at Christmas?
