My Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays Message to You

My Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays Message to You

Family, friends, and festiveness…I love how the holidays reminds us of the things that really matter. How they remind us to slow down and enjoy the time and people we have.

From my family to yours, I want to wish you a VERY Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays. I’m very grateful for your support, and I can’t wait to do my best in helping you make 2014 the best year ever.

In closing, I’d like to leave you with my favorite Christmas poem, Ring Out, Wild Bells by Lord Alfred Tennyson:

Ring out, wild bells, to the wild sky,
The flying cloud, the frosty light
The year is dying in the night;
Ring out, wild bells, and let him die.

Ring out the old, ring in the new,
Ring, happy bells, across the snow:
The year is going, let him go;
Ring out the false, ring in the true.

Ring out the grief that saps the mind,
For those that here we see no more,
Ring out the feud of rich and poor,
Ring in redress to all mankind.

Ring out a slowly dying cause,
And ancient forms of party strife;
Ring in the nobler modes of life,
With sweeter manners, purer laws.
Ring out the want, the care, the sin,
The faithless coldness of the times;
Ring out, ring out thy mournful rhymes,
But ring the fuller minstrel in.

Ring out false pride in place and blood,
The civic slander and the spite;
Ring in the love of truth and right,
Ring in the common love of good.

Ring out old shapes of foul disease,
Ring out the narrowing lust of gold;
Ring out the thousand wars of old,
Ring in the thousand years of peace.

Ring in the valiant man and free,
The larger heart the kindlier hand;
Ring out the darkness of the land,
Ring in the Christ that is to be.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
