It's a Wonderful Life 

Christmas is a time for 
counting our blessings. 

A season for remembering 

the good that happened this year. 

For recognizing who we are 

far outweighs what we have. 
For measuring our lives by 
by intangibles, not tangibles. 

For looking at our loved ones 

with gratitude for how they 
enrich our lives.

It's a Wonderful Life 

Clarence: Your brother, Harry Bailey, broke through the ice and was drowned at the age of nine. 

George: That's a lie! Harry Bailey went to war! He got the Congressional Medal of Honor! He saved the lives of every man on that transport. 

Clarence: Every man on that transport died! Harry wasn't there to save them, because you weren't there to save Harry. 

You see, George, you really had a wonderful life. Don't you see what a mistake it would be to throw it away?
