“Christmas, my boys, is not a date, it’s a state of mind.” – Mary Ellen Chase
Maybe Christmas is a time when we feel more friendship, generosity to give, humility to receive, the human value of things.
Looking at the past year, since last Christmas, I have to acknowledge that many days were Christmas. Yes, this year has been prodigious in joys, challenges, friendship, generosity and humility. I know that I gave the best I could give and I appreciate the fact that it received far more.
When March comes, I will assess how many of my days in the first quarter were days of Christmas and so I’ll know if they were worth it.
