Wishing you the gifts of the season – Peace, Joy, Hope

Wishing you the gifts of the season — Peace, Joy, Hope

About a year ago I made a Facebook post of a true story that had happened one morning while I was running an errand before school with my then 8 year old. This exuberant little boy, with a big grin really taught me something that day. Without rewriting my whole FB post, in a brief description I had been feeling down about a disappointment that had just occurred the day before. I stopped at a local supermarket with my little chatty, smiling boy to pick up some cookies for a holiday party his class was having that day. My boy skipping, singing, wiggling, jumping, grinning suddenly stopped and in his biggest of smiles and expressive of waves he wished a man exiting the store a HAPPY CHRISTMAS! The man’s face lit up like our newly decorated Christmas Tree. The man smiled and wished us a Happy Christmas right back. We went on into the store but did not know that the man, a former professional baseball player, had followed us in to the bakery. He wanted to personally thank my boy for his most memorable greeting and extend to him a warm embrace for making his day. To make his day all it took was a genuine smile and generous intention with the words…HAPPY CHRISTMAS. I quickly realized I had forgotten my disappointment of earlier and was enjoying this exchange of Christmas Greetings. So when life gets you down, take the holiday spirit with you all year long. With excitement of an 8 year old wish all those you see the most Happiest of Days all days of the year.

We wish all of our friends a Very Merry Christmas and a Joyous New Year!
