Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays to All

For some reason it is all too easy for humans to take their life for granted
- without appreciation, without wonderment, without thankfulness.

Like the song says, we don't appreciate what we have until it is gone.

This time of year is better than most to appreciate your life, your loved ones, the paths you took, the paths you did not take, what you have, and even what you don't have.

Whatever your failings or mistakes, be kind to yourself and learn from your own errors
- instead of blaming yourself with recriminations as so many people do.

Take stock, learn from yourself, and make a better New Year!

On behalf of the RFF Mods and Admins,
We all wish you Peace and Contentment
in this Holiday Season and the coming New Year!

Thank you Stephen for such words of meaning. I hope to do just that in the coming year. Thank you for giving us this forum to use as a gathering place for like minded brethern. Thank's also to all the mods who volunteer your day to keep the sanity in check, long hours of your time, & the patience to put up with us when we stray too far off topic.
