This time of year, I like to step back from the rush-rush-rush of fame and fortune, take a breathe, and really be thankful for all the goodness and love that really makes one's life worth living. As a wise man once said, "...and, in the end, the love you take, is equal to the love you make..."

Here's hoping you and yours have a very merry holiday season!
