As expected each year, the month of December is full of excitement, love, and giving (and a little stress). We are reminded to be kind to each other and during this month of the year, we all try to be “better people”. A recent patient of ours showed me that there are people who are truly trying to make the world a better place, and not just because Santa is coming to town. Our patient said, “Smile, Laugh, Dance, and Pray and you will have a blessed day”. He said that is his message to the world, and when someone who lives in China or Australia says it back to him, he will know his message has gone all the way around the world. I’m spreading his message in hopes that someday he will hear someone say it back to him, and as encouragement to everyone to keep trying to be “better people”, even after the holiday season has ended.
