Monday Quotable

"We tend to forget that happiness doesn't come as a result of
getting something we don't have, but rather of recognizing and appreciating what we do have." ~ Frederick Keonig

"There are those who give with joy,
and that joy is their reward." ~ Kahlil Gibran

In the season of gift giving and receiving, I am constantly reminding myself to appreciate what I have, to love and serve others and to not get lost in the endless pursuit of buying the perfect gift or adding reasonable things to my own wish list. Ultimately, the spirit of the season is the spirit of joy. It is the greatest gift to give and receive and it doesn’t have a price tag. Today’s quotes help me focus on the true meaning of joy/happiness. I hope they do the same for you.
