This holiday season has been different for me. I feel a deep sense of peace and calm. I am joyful!
My daughters and I picked out our “real” Christmas tree a few days ago and the whole evening was filled with laughter and celebration. We decided to go to dinner after. I noticed that the restaurant was filled with large parties of people celebrating the season and each other. As we waited I watched people take pictures, exchange gifts, hug, laugh and connect. It was fascinating. As the days have gone by, I have had an acute awareness of people sharing their lives with one another. As I travel, I watch people say goodbye and greet each other. As I shop, I see people in groups enjoying the holiday season. I am a part of a charity that celebrates children and families and the progress a child makes as he/she is connected to others.
