Every year I use the holidays to express some sentiment about enjoying family, friends and taking a break from the often-hectic and harrying pace of our lives, and I mean those sentiments very sincerely. While we may not like to think about it, we each have only a limited time in our lives. That should impel a certain seriousness in understanding what makes a real difference in our happiness and satisfaction. The comfort of meaningful relationships with others should be at the top of that list. So I hope all of you find dedicated and ample time for those relationships. And enjoy the relative economic security and abundance we enjoy in this country; it doesn’t happen by accident and it isn’t present everywhere around the world.
