Because these times in which we are living are so troubled, I was pleased to find a way to use a list of positive thoughts, actions, and feelings for two Christmas gifts. The list originated with a man Leo Quinn who has various Internet enterprises and on whose mailing list I am. I printed out the list for myself. Then as the holidays came closer for my daughter and my cousin I photocopied the list and cut each word out. Having at least 365 strips of paper I put each set in an opaque plastic bowl with a red cover (not very elegant but I needed something large enough to hold all the slips of paper). I told both recipients that I hoped each morning during 2013 they would draw out one piece of paper and focus on that word throughout the day. Whether they actually will follow through or not I don't know, but I believe if they do that they will benefit from focusing on the positive. I also gave them other gifts.
