25 ways to be different this Christmas

This was created in the aftermath of 9/11 and still provides great perspective….here are a few of the 25 ideas.

Last Christmas we were thinking about all the things we didn’t have….this Christmas we are thinking about all the things we do.

Last Christmas we were placing wreaths on the doors of our homes…this Christmas we are placing wreaths on the graves of our heroes.

Last Christmas we were letting our sons play with toy guns…this Christmas we are teaching them that guns are not toys

Last Christmas we were counting our money, this Christmas we are counting our blessings

Last Christmas we were lighting candles to decorate…this Christmas we are lighting candles to commemorate.

Last Christmas we were digging deep into our bank accounts to find money to fly home for the holidays…this Christmas we are digging deep into our souls to find the courage to do so.
