Never too busy.......for holiday wishes

By Adam Glasgow - 12/26/2017

I remember years ago my parents had a sign that hung in our house. It said something like “It’s not enough to be busy; the question is what are we busy about?” I always liked that quote and in thinking about writing this holiday message to you, I decided to see if I could find the quote on Google. (I’ll explain why I was thinking about the quote in relation to YOU in a minute. Hang with me….)

It didn’t take me very long to find the quote. It was from Henry David Thoreau and it must be quite well known because lots of fancy Google images popped right up with it. But it had one funny line that I hadn’t remembered:  “It’s not enough to be busy; so are the ants. The question is: what are we busy about?” That gave me a good laugh. Yes, the ants are busy (and come spring they seem to be at their busiest in my house, but that is a story for another time).

So thinking about this quote made me think of all of you, and also think of myself.

During this holiday season, I wish for all of you, not just time spent being busy, but time spent with meaning and purpose. I hope your days are filled with family and friends, with good conversation, and with spirituality and light (whatever that means to you). As 2017 comes to a close and we embark on a new year, may you find the things in your life that you care about and may you pursue them – whether it be a hobby or an adventure or cause or even a person. I hope that you find the time to do the things that bring you happiness.

And as for me, my “busy” has been all of you. I want to thank you for that. I am so appreciative of how you let me into your lives. I love hearing from you about all you have accomplished, seeing your photos and hearing your stories. It brings me happiness to hear from you. While I love hearing your GOOD news, I also value hearing about your challenges. When you reach out for help, you are showing strength and allowing me to try to support you. So thank you for letting me in and keeping me busy with such meaningful work.

However and wherever you celebrate, may this season be filled with the best type of busy and may your 2018 be filled with light.
