My third of the extended Twelve Days of Christmas came on February 17th which is the date I have chosen for each month because it is my wife’s birthday and St. Patrick’s Day. I am happy to report that I did follow through and it does feel good.

I have marked my 2015 calendar for each of the twelve months as a way of extending the wonderful spirit of Christmas throughout the entire year. My hope is that others will join in the spirit and make it a wonderful time for all of us. It does not need to be a grand gesture. Just make it something simple. Something you will do.

On March 15, I met a lady in the Honey Baked Ham Store who knows how to spread joy. She was buying ham to take to a family whose mother is in the hospital. She took the time to share some ideas with me and my friend Bob. When I thanked her for her helpfulness, she responded. “Isn’t that what life is all about, helping each other?” Wow!

I am writing this as a part of my accountability to myself to remind me to follow through. Please join me as we go through the year. It takes so little to brighten another person’s day.
