The words of Albert Einstein remind me that no matter how much I’ve accomplished, how much I’ve given of my time, my money and my wisdom it will never be finished. In this famous quote he said “we are here for the sake of others.”
“Strange is our situation here upon earth. Each of us comes for a short visit, not knowing why, yet sometimes seeming to a divine purpose. From the standpoint of daily life, however, there is one thing we do know: That we are here for the sake of others…for the countless unknown souls with whose fate we are connected by a bond of sympathy. Many times a day, I realize how much my outer and inner life is built upon the labors of people, both living and dead, and how earnestly I must exert myself in order to give in return as much as I have received and am still receiving.”
There will always be others. May your holidays be blessed with family, friends and faith. And may the coming year be one of giving in return as much as you have received and are still receiving.
See you in 2016.
