Another end of another year and the Holiday cartoons are a plenty. Since 1966 (wow) the beautifully written (Dr. Seuss) and melodically narrated (Boris Karloff) has returned annually to remind us that being a “bah-humbug” is not the best way to go through life. While the crummy days may give us cause to frown; just take a moment to remember ALL the good days that make us smile.
Our most recent Membership meeting helped me put this into a bit better perspective. This Association is made up of a lot of different years of experience. Many of us made our starts in the 80’s. So many of us are moving on in both life and….death. The group of folks that talked about the life of Brad Cyrier had only “smiley” things to say, as it should be. To catch a nod of the head and/or a sly smile on the attendee’s faces shows that we are were thinking about him and the relationships that were kindled.
If you have, or do own a pet, you know that unrelenting love and enthusiasm that greet you at the door each time you return home. The pet is smiling at you and wants to have your attention. (OK, cats not so much). If we all took a moment, and treated every person we see throughout our lives, imagine the good feeling that can come. Do this and your heart will grow 10 times as the Grinch’s did.
Remember the good days, and the good times, that have happened and smile toward the ones that will. Cheers!
Ps: The theme song from the cartoon was sung by the same gent that voiced Tony the Tiger. (cool)
