Before Christmas we are normally quite busy so we don’t all get a chance to read all of the Christmas cards before they get put on the doors as decoration for the period. It’s become a bit of a tradition to sit down and read through the cards after we have taken them down.
It was a special thing to take note of who had taken the time to send cards.
I really enjoyed reflecting on them all and it reminded me of an early blessing when I talked about a study done with people over the age of 95. They we asked what they would do differently if they had their life to live over again. Their answers were:
- They would risk more.
- They would reflect more.
- They would do more things that would live on after they were dead.
I keep reminding myself in the busy days to reflect more.
