The greatest gift you can give someone is your time, your attention, your love, your concern. Thich Nhat Hanh
As the holiday season approaches, and I have the wonderful privilege of celebrating Christmas with family and friends, my heart is filled with gratitude and admiration for those who have dedicated this Christmas to the noble cause of caring for others.
In the quiet moments, you spend away from your own families, you are creating a blanket of kindness that wraps around those in need. Your sacrifice echoes the timeless message of Christmas – a celebration of giving, of putting others before oneself, and of sharing love in its purest form.
Your selflessness has illuminated the true spirit of the season. You are the unsung heroes, the quiet champions, and the embodiment of service…
Like the stars that shine brightest in the darkest night, you bring comfort and solace to those who are suffering. Your service is a gift to humanity, and the love you pour into your work ripples far beyond the walls of the spaces you care for. Every one of you is creating a legacy of kindness, one that will be remembered long after the tinsel and lights have been packed away.
And so, in this season of giving, may you feel the warmth of appreciation, the embrace of gratitude, and the joy that comes from knowing you have made a difference in the lives of those you serve. May the spirit of Christmas illuminate your path, filling your hearts with peace, love, and the knowledge that you are cherished and valued. May you always remember that…
It’s not how much we give, but how much love we put into giving. Mother Teresa
