WJSB Talks!

It's easy to be nice to family, friends and even strangers at Christmas time isn't it? But if you're doing anything kind because you feel obligated or would otherwise feel guilty if you left it undone, then don't do it on Christmas. Do it on another day. Christmas is supposed to remind us of what is most important so that we can act that out throughout our lives, not just once per spin around the sun.

I challenge you to wake up on January 2 and do something kind for a stranger. Call a relative. Post a card in the mail to a friend you haven't spoken to lately.
