Crazy Family Members
At the holiday gathering, consider the talents that differentiate you from others at the party. Some plan the meals well with complex recipes, while others ensure that they are served on time. Still others clean and ensure that the gathering place is comfortable for everyone. In contrast, some will arrive late bringing spontaneity to well-laid plans. Some will offend you or offer the opportunity to spar about social issues while others will give you the opportunity to reminisce happily about past gatherings.
As some family members annoy you or you wish you could be better at something, be reminded that our strengths and weaknesses are what make each of us unique - why not celebrate them?
