“A happy childhood is a parent’s greatest gift”

I hope that everyone had a very nice long Thanksgiving weekend with the family. My family and I spent the weekend with my parents, my siblings and their families. I am really fortunate to have grown up in a solid family with parents that are not only still alive, but still married to this day. It is truly a blessing and I can only hope to pass on this tradition to my own children. It sounds cliche, but there really is nothing like family. It is for this reason that I try to enjoy every minute with them – all of them. There’s no substitute for love, caring and sharing.

Just wanted to share those thoughts, and I sincerely hope everyone enjoys the upcoming Christmas season with their families and friends. It truly is the best time of the year. It is a time when we reflect on that fact that the power of Christ is best reflected through forgiveness, reconciliation, sacrificial love, and serving society.
