Martha B's Holiday Tip

A few 24 hours ago on Thanksgiving in a meeting at Jackson, TN, someone suggested that anyone having a bad holiday should "get out of the problem and into the solution."

This was not a new statement to me, but this particular day hearing it verbally had a significant effect on me. I pass this along in hopes that it will be received and remembered by someone who needs to take a good look at what is going on in 'self' today.
