Merry Christmas! I for one love this time of year. I love that people remember that everyone is a person, complete with feelings, needs, and wants. I love how people freely give of their time and substance to show appreciation for those in their lives, and how people will give to complete strangers in their time of need. Instead of writing my thoughts on Christmas I decided today to share a short story I recently wrote. I hope you enjoy this special time of year. Take a few minutes to reflect on the good things in your life, and how you can enrich the lives of others. Again, Merry Christmas!
