Believe in Something Grander

     Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanzaa and, simply, have a Good Day to everyone contributes, reads and/or organizes the Trifecta Writing Challenge.  It has been great writing, reading and commenting throughout the year.  Being able to spend some time in the company of so many talented and generous people has been a great pleasure. I wish you all Peace, Love, Good Health and Happiness in the days to come and the year ahead.
     Trifecta has asked for our thoughts on Christmas and the Holidays in 33 words so, here goes.



Believe in Something Grander

In times of cynicism and Griswoldian excess
it is important to follow the lead of our children.
Believe in something grander than ourselves.
Believe with your eyes wide and your hearts full.
Believe.


My girls, aged 3 and 6, watching a video e-mail from Santa. They are both deeply in the throes of believing in the magic of Christmas and, as such, there is a wonderful spirit and warmth in our home this year.  Believe with your eyes wide and your hearts full. Merry Christmas everyone. :)
