A Soldiers Poem

This is a glorious time of year; a time of year to reflect and give thanks for the blessings we have. Lets move forward and be positive, tuning out all the negativity. The future is bright for all of us no matter what obstacles we may be going through. Make the new year ahead not a time for resolutions but a time for solutions. Let gratitude and selflessness be your theme.
Merry Christmas!

Bah Humbug!  A phrase coined years ago in the great Charles Dickens novel "A Christmas Carol"  by the one and only Eboneezer Scrooge.  This wonderful story is presented to us every year during the holiday season and usually I dont pay much attention to it.  But this year with all the negativity in the world I find myself drawn to its core message.  I think many out there have been living the mentality of humbuggery for most of the year and now is the time to reflect and reavaluate our thinking and our priorities.  Look at Scrooge, he basically had it all, or what we consider having it all; money, power, a large home and great wealth.  But as the story unfolds we find these things of monetary value have not brought this man happiness, love or peace.  He is alone and miserable for his warped mind has convinced him that the almighty dollar is the road to his salvation.  Fortunately for Mr. Scrooge he was cured of his humbuggery by ghosts who scared him into jolliness. Seeing how life was or could have been, and is yet to come enabled this man to reavaluate  his life and start anew with mankind and charity as his main priority.  Self and whats in it for me would no longer be his mantra. So maybe Scrooge is just like our own humbuggery ... within us all we are filled with  goodwill and joy but this year for whatever reason we have been unwilling to express these qualities in the very season which epitomizes them.  Don't let this Christmas season and year end galla end with a Bah Humbug!  Instead challenge yourself to do better, think more about others than self and reaffirm to the world that good cheer and peace on earth is, and always will be the true road to happiness.

God Bless us All!

Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah!
