Ever feel like Christmas sneaks up on you? Why are we always surprised by it...it comes on exactly the same date every year.
Where I live, it is the morning of the day before Christmas Eve, and the news media is full of last-minute shopping tips and holiday dos and don'ts. But this morning as I am racing the clock to finish the last of my homemade gifts (hopefully!), I am thinking about family and friends on the other side of the globe who have already edged much closer to the magical moment of Christmas.
Happy holidays and many blessings, my friends across the world. May you know joy and peace and the simple pleasures of love and light in the coming year.
