THE CRAZINESS OF THE SEASON
As we are wedged into the center of the holiday season, our perspective on what is important can be skewed a bit. When we think of this time of year, many times we become consumed with material items which we think will be the perfect gift. Much of our time is spent running from one store to another looking to check off our gift lists. We spend time and money on material items, which within a year, could be useless or cast aside for a new model. As I was aimlessly wandering through some YouTube videos, I came across a German commercial which really sums up the true meaning for our season. It depicts a lonely man, who spends year after year alone during the holidays. All that he wishes, is to bring his family together for one holiday. What he does is extreme, but it does make for a true impact on us all. This time of year, we are all busy in all aspects of our lives, but we must remember that it's family and friends which are the real gifts. Please take the time to view the video below. It has nothing to do with education, but more importantly, it has everything to do with life! I am thankful that all of you are a part of the WD family!
