A Thought for the Holiday

The holiday season is upon us! For some it marks the celebration of the birth of Christ, and for almost all, the season is a time of reflection and for giving thanks. I have been giving a lot of thought to this year’s holiday season and in addition to giving thanks for my family and friends, I was reading an article that was simplistic, yet, at least for me, eye opening.

For many of us, myself included, we tend to tend to often focus on the daily challenges of life. But when you think about it, there are so many things that must go right in order for us to make through each day. Just think for a moment about the number of things in our own bodies. Each cell working properly, our heart, lungs, blood vessels etc. must work in a way that allows us to live. It takes thousand of things going right just to get up each morning. Then we head off to work or some other activity. The number of cars that we pass on the road each and every day that don’t create a collision or an equipment breakdown that creates danger to life and limb. How about the food that we eat? From the farmer to the dinner table, the number of steps that have to go right, just for us to eat the simplest of meals is astounding! Then of course our loved ones or friends that we take comfort in, even if we don’t have a chance to see them very often.

Of course, there are times when we suffer a loss that is so great no amount of positive reflection can comfort us at that moment. But in the big picture, my point is that when we think of all that must go right in order for us to make it through each and every day, the five or six or ten difficulties that we face, generally pale in comparison to the thousands of things that go right in our lives each day.

That is the thought that I hope to live by moving forward in 2015.

We here at Founders wish you the best holiday season!
