“There is good in everyone.”
by John Alexander Madison
November 29, 2010
This is the time of the year when we pause and give thanks for all the blessings in our lives, for our families, our friends and for members of the armed services who fight for our freedoms every day.
This year I want to give special thanks and congratulations to the Hallmark Company on the celebration of their 100th anniversary and their 59th season of the Hallmark Hall of Fame television program series featuring “November Christmas,” which was televised on Sunday evening.
If you did not see this program you missed what I would characterize as two of the most heart-wrenching, yet fulfilling and enjoyable hours of the entire 2010 television season. Yes, it had a happy ending to what could have been a tragic story.
Among the messages of the movie one thing was very apparent…and that was in spite of our differences, in spite of the challenges we each face every day in our own lives, when people come together to support and bring happiness to others there will be many more good endings in our future.
While we celebrated and gave special thanks on our annual Thanksgiving holiday last Thursday, I’d like to suggest that if we all took a few moments every day to give thanks and praise, as if every day was Thanksgiving Day, the world would be an even better place.
There is, after all, good in everyone.
The next special presentation of the Hallmark Hall of Fame “The Lost Valentine” will be televised on January 30, 2011 and I strongly urge you to take time out to enjoy it with your family and friends.
