The Holidays Descend Upon Us
It's all so cliche, yet true. As my son develops the 'gimmes' , I try to talk to him about why we give gifts, that it represents the giving of gifts by the wisemen to the newborn Jesus. I try to tell him the story of that night, of sacrifice, and love.
I won't know if I succeed at this, instilling in my son the values I try myself to show, until he has grown up into a man. I can only remember how he is right now. This will probably be my last post this year until 2006. I need time to soak it all in, and then let it all out. As well all do our own ritual end of year practices. So from my family to yours, MERRY CHRISTMAS, HAPPY HOLIDAYS, and HAPPY NEW YEAR. As I have lost people I loved last year and this year, please try to tell your loved ones how much they truly mean to you.
You never know when they last time you see them and talk to them will be, until it is too late. GOD BLESS.
