The Real Santa is a Car Dealer

I was fortunate this morning to hear (for the second time) Phil Smart speak about the 3rd 8. Mr. Smart explains the 3rd 8 as those hours in the day that are not devoted to work or sleep, and are therefore ours to do with what we wish. He has been spending some of his 3rd 8 at Children's Hospital every week for the last 42 years. He has amazing stories to tell of the heroism of the children he has met; his "teachers." One story was of the boy who had been very badly burned, and when asked what his favorite Christmas gift was, he answered "eyelids."

I'm very grateful that I have eyelids this Christmas. And to be healthy and warm and fed with great family and friends and an amazing hard-wood-floor installer.
