I plan to be offline today. Christmas Day is one of the few where I pledge to my family that I’ll turn off the infernal machine and spend time with them. With our little one not so little anymore, we have few holidays remaining filled with childlike wonder.
Unfortunately, it isn’t like that for everybody else. The world is never without hardship, but this year is especially volatile. My heart goes out to those whose children aren’t coming home for Christmas, or any other day. I don’t want for presents much – I tell family just get me a GC for a bookstore and that’s fine. As long as I can still see that’s gift enough.
Today I wish you happiness and peace, and share one of my favorite holiday songs. Be safe.
