Momentum Monday

Winston Churchill

Isn’t this a great way to end the Holiday Season all the while carrying the spirit into this new year?

I was touched deeply when I read this. It’s what life is all about. People who criticize money don’t take the time to realize all the good that can be done with money. When you have money, you can help others. But this quote is not just about money. It’s about friendship, love and even laughter. As I read it, I was reminded of a great guy I know from running but also on Facebook.  His posts are funny but they are “him”, not just jokes or photos as many people post. He posts about himself and his life but makes you laugh while doing so. He gives the gift of laughter and we all know that “laughter is the best medicine”.

We give support to others in times of struggle. I know that I would not have finished my “Tennessee Trek” last summer without the support of everyone on Facebook and of my friends with their texts and phone calls.  That was a gift I’ll never forget.

What gifts can you give that will shape and define your life?

Keep this in mind all week as you begin the best year ever!
