I saw an ad in the newspaper this weekend which I found to be very thought provoking. The advertiser was a local medical firm. They had taken a half-page ad and made it look like a piece of lined foolscap. The headline was “Count Your Blessings” and that was all there was to it. No message about their services; no plea for donations.
As I said, it was thought provoking, especially at this time of year when the emphasis for many is on what they will receive.
