Last year, around this time, I found a little red note on the desk in the office I shared with a colleague at Yorkshire Elementary School. I wish I knew its source, because I'd like to give credit where credit is due for such a lovely seasonal reminder. And, at the risk of making your list any longer, I'm sharing a few more Christmas to-dos to keep in mind. (If someone reading this knows the source, please comment and share it!)
Wonderful Gifts to Give This Holiday Season:
Mend a quarrel.Give a soft answer.Encourage youth.Keep a promise.Be gentle.Apologize if you're wrong.Express your gratitude.Welcome a stranger.Gladden the heart of a child.Speak your love.Speak it again.
'Tis the season.
