Christmas waves a magic wand over this world, and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful. ~Norman Vincent Peale
I love Christmas! There are plenty of Grinches out there, but I am not one of them. I love the chance to be excited, happy, friendly and childlike. I am as excited putting gifts under the tree and waiting for Connor's bright eyes to behold the Wonders of Christmas as I was to be the child seeing it. I love to make gifts and cookies, to pass them out to neighbors and friends. I wish everyday was like Christmas! There are so many Reasons and Wonders, Magics and Spirits wrapped up in this day. For me, the Spirit of Christmas is the spirit of giving, not just things, but giving of yourself.
So, I will be gathered around the tree in just a few short hours with my family, laughing and eating, and I hope you all will have the chance to do the same!
