For the past few years my parents have written a letter to my siblings and I on Christmas. In it there are words of encouragement and reflections on the year. Today I was reading one of the letters written in 2013 and wanted to share some of the words of encouragement my parents passed on to us.
“With life comes many challenges both good and bad. It is how we handle these challenges that determines our self worth and the contributions we make in life. Keep your morals to the highest level so that whatever you do you will be proud of yourself and have no regrets. Make a difference in the lives of those you come in contact with on a daily basis, for that is the most important contribution you can make in life. Learn from the past but leave it in the past or your load will be too heavy to reach the top of the mountain.” – Dad and Mom
We hope you all have a very Merry Christmas or Happy Hanukah, and a Happy New Year!
