By the time you will have read this, here are a couple of things that have happened. A woman talks to me about how we need to get back to celebrating the reason for the season. I've heard this a number of times from folks but still I nod my head and agree with her as if this were some new idea. I walk on because I'm on my way to see my children's school Christmas play. It tickles me to see them on stage in their costumes. Despite their nervousness of being in front of the crowd, they remember their lines and words to the songs. They tell the story of Christmas so innocently as only little children could. Nevertheless, the play ends and we must be on our way. Both the wife and I feel the pressure of a million things needing to be accomplished before this Wednesday.
