The meaning of Christmas

What's great about Christmas--and getting older--is that, once you've learned that giving is what it's all about and you've accepted that, long ago, you also get to the point where re-connecting with long-time friends is what Christmas and the holidays is all about, too.

And here's where technology comes in and helps.

Yesterday, I texted "Merry Christmas" to every friend I had in my phone, and for whom it was appropriate and warranted.  Naturally, I wanted to make sure it wasn't a nuisance to any.  ( hope and assume it wasn't).

And I think I surprised--pleasantly surprised--some of those old friends.  Several, at least, I think and in fact.

Some had moved away.

Others I just hadn't spoken to in a long time.

It was nice.

I hope you re-connected--or that you do--this holiday season.

Merry Christmas.

Shoot, thanks for your friendship, back and forth banter and progressive support, moral and otherwise.

All the best to you--and to us--in the new year.

We're going to need it.
