As the memories of this Christmas still swirl around us
with warmth and happiness, I secretly wonder, what was
your favorite moment?  I hope there were many!
As I think of my own, one most vivid was when my three
little grandchildren gathered around me, and I read them
the Christmas story, in a very short, but tender version.
They were most captivated by the kind animals that welcomed
Mary and Joseph and little baby Jesus on the night of His birth.
I could see in their sparkling little eyes, they understood the meaning
of kindness.
In just days, we will welcome in a New Year.  May the kindness
we live and share with others be our cornerstone and how 
we are remembered.
