12 Days of Christmas: The Grinch

12 Days of Christmas: The Grinch

Now, I know the Grinch might not seem like a hopeful character, but for those of you who have read the Dr. Seuss tale or watched the movie, you know that in the end he finds heart. I think this quote really hits home for me. So often we get caught up in the material aspects of the holidays and get bogged down with the pressure to spend, spend, spend.

Rather this year, in addition to whatever gifts you might exchange, I hope you take a moment to spend your time not just money. Visit with a friend, volunteer to help those less fortunate, be truly present with your family members, just to name a few. Give them yourself instead. Learn from our friend the Grinch!
