This quote was a wonderful reminder to me about what Christmas is all about. I try each year to separate myself more and more from the “joy of getting” mentality. More and more in my adult life I’m beginning to see that spending this time of year with people who I love and rarely get to see is so much more precious than any physical gift. And I am so thankful for that. The more I concentrate on the present moment with my loved ones, the more I feel transformed by the renewing of my perspective in the holiday season.
