“Look at everything as though you were seeing it either for the first or last time. Then your time on earth will be filled with glory.” — Betty Smith

She believes in the magic. Last night, our daughter laid out cookies and milk for Santa at the front door.  This morning she darted to the door and exclaimed, “Momma, Santa came. He ate my cookies and drank the milk.” She eyed the presents and complimented Santa’s ability to wrap. For most of the morning, wonder captured her attention. And isn’t that the whole point? To be engulfed in a moment that appears to have no beginning or ending.

I hope all of you experience the grace of the present and are swallowed whole by the love of family, friends, and spirit.

Happy Holidays.
