Random Thoughts

--It's been a little hard this week to really get into the Christmas spirit when it's 72 degrees outside. But compared to the folks weathering ice storms and power outages in Oklahoma and other parts, I think we've got it pretty good.

--Let's face it, Christmas is not always "the most wonderful time of the year" for everyone. The girls at Girl Talk have posted a couple of insightful blog entries about dealing with loss, hurt and disappointment over the holidays.

--I recently discovered a new blog, Breakfast with Fred. Over the past couple of years I've subscribed to Fred Smith's e-newsletter and frequented his website. Fred, who passed away in August, was a popular speaker and author who taught much about leadership and integrity. The blog was started in memory of Fred and includes many thought-provoking questions about leadership, communication and personal growth.

--Hearing "Oh Holy Night" is a surefire way to get me into the Christmas spirit. What song really makes you think about the birth of Jesus?
