#motivationMonday is to honor the various holidays that occur this week – Hanukkah, Christmas, and Kwanza. Each holiday has it’s own traditions and backgrounds, but they all encourage a giving spirit. Yes gifts are involved. But, I am talking about that quality to want to give – give your time, sharing your heart with others, or giving a kind word to someone in despair. I end with a concept my father passed on to me – material items will fade away but the memory of a person’s desire to give will last forever.
