I love the Holiday Season for so many reasons: the delicious food, quality family time, fun parties and events, and the shimmering lights. I love the festive cheer, spreading of goodwill, and bringing light and warmth into a home.
I also treasure the tradition of giving gifts. I find it irresistible to watch the pure joy on my daughters’ faces as they tear open wrapping paper, or my husband’s smile as he unveils a present specially chosen by our four-year-old. The feeling is overwhelming. It’s intoxicating, really.
“For it is in giving that we receive” ~Francis of Assisi
And, our world could use a little more generosity and openheartedness right now. So, I hope that this Holiday Season finds you happy, healthy and surrounded by loved ones and overwhelmed with generosity.
