Christmas, ah Christmas!
Recently I was asked what it is that I like best about Christmas. Perhaps the question came up because I was singing as I baked shortbread cookies. I had to think about it and I realized it is the anticipation of Christmas that I love best . The endless possibilities, the optimism, the good will.
It is inevitable that there will be disappointments at Christmas.If not for me and mine then certainly for someone we know, or someone will be introduced to through the media.
Until then, I will sing under my breathe and look forward to the sharing of good will, food and yes- even gifts, with my family. I will relish the coming together and the pause in this part of the world as we celebrate together.
Merry Christmas to you.
