and no, it's not for a new handbag, or more time in the day... Tonight I was watching Marley and Me, and cried like a baby...again...but the last line of the movie sneaked up on me, as it has before. It reminded me of Christmas, how we can take the day/gift giving/pressure of it all for granted, and completely miss the big picture. This last line is what we need to concentrate on (and yeah, ok, it was about a dog, but it sums up unconditional love for me) "How many people can make you feel rare and pure and special? How many people can make you feel extraordinary?"
This Christmas, my wish for you is to make someone feel extraordinary. We get so few chances to make someone feel special. Take the opportunities when they're handed to you.
