Initially, this was going to be a quick blog post to wish each and every one of you the very best during this holiday season from my family to yours. And, it still is. However, with the terrible, terrible tragedy that occurred in Newtown, Connecticut (my deepest, heartfelt thoughts and prayers go out to the victims and their families), I want strongly encourage each and every one of you to celebrate and embrace your own family members during this very difficult time, especially the young ones. Take a few moments out of your day and your busy schedules to offer some hugs, some kind, positive words about that family member and extend an invitation to him or her to step outside or to do something together. The kids, it seems, aren’t with us long and mine have grown up way too quickly!
Express to your family members how much you love and care about them and how much they matter! I’ve continually done that with my family over the years, and I would tell you to do the same. Have a wonderful, family-oriented holiday season from all of us in that tight-knit Wagner bunch! Oh, and GOOO BIGGGG REEEDDDD!
