Christmas Shows Us

December 24th, 2010

“Christmas reminds us we are not alone.
We are not unrelated atoms, bouncing and ricocheting amid aliens, but are a part of something which holds and sustains us.
As we struggle with shopping lists and invitations, compounded by December’s bad weather, it is good to be reminded that there are people in our lives who are worth this aggravation, and people to whom we are worth the same.
Christmas shows us the ties that bind us together, threads of love and caring, woven in the simplest and strongest ways.”
— Donald E. Westlake

AB — During this busy season, I hope you take some time to stop and listen — kids always get right to the heart of the matter:
“When a group of professional people asked a group of 4-to-8-year olds, ‘What does love mean?’ one replied, ‘Love is what’s in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening presents and just listen.’ ”
— Warren McLaren
