Great blessings from humble beginnings

Christmas is all about little things becoming great. A diminutive elf of unknown origins comes in the stillness of night, bringing joy to children throughout the world. A rejected reindeer becomes his brothers' guide. Kids steal the spotlight, while dutiful parents burn the midnight oil to get the stockings hung and presents all in place. And, for the fortunate, snow falls. Christmas grows white as tiny crystalline snowflakes cling together, descending silently like feathers from heaven's angels, blowing in by the billions from the far corners of winter and blanketing the barren earth.

Guys, your success is hanging on by a hair

My dad was always very proud of his raven black hair and raven black mustache. When his 40th birthday rolled around, the first gray hair appeared. But he didn't get discouraged by the obvious sign of aging. He simply got his hair and mustache colored the darkest shade of black during his regular hair trim every month. He turned 60 this February and he looks as good as always, with only few people knowing his secret.
