Christmas Eve. The most enchanted day of the year. 51 years later and I still feel that little girl stirring inside me. Excited and joyful and optimistic. Such is the magic of this day.
Between 9 PM Christmas Eve and 2 AM Christmas morning, there is something so tender, so mesmerizing and so promising about those hours. In that fleeting period, a peacefulness sweeps across the land that is without equal. Warmth envelopes our hearts, compassion rises to the surface and we recognize that we all have similar dreams and hopes and vulnerabilities and fears. Every single one of us on a comparable journey; one that we don’t always understand.
When Christmas Eve arrives, it brings with it the greatest gift of all: harmony.
May we all carry that gift with us into every day of the year.
Peace, love and joy to all of you.
