people will forget what you did,
but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
~ Maya Angelou
whether or not they are there when you say or do what you say or do?"
This is one of the times when families and friends gather to celebrate and there is a lot of talking. Please think before you talk - because what you think about, you'll likely talk about and when you talk, feelings are "transmitted":
So, "Brothers and sisters, think about [focus your thoughts on; fill your minds with] things that are true and honorable and right [just] and pure and beautiful [lovely] and respected [commendable]. If there is anything that is good [morally excellent] and worthy of praise, think about [focus your thoughts on; fill your minds with] these things"* and the people around you will be blessed and glad (not stressed and sad) that they know you...
Wishing you and yours a memorable Christmas and a favourable New Year. God bless,
