I wanted to take a moment and wish all of you and your lovely families a very Merry Christmas. The recent tragic events in our world has made it necessary to reflect on what is truly important in our lives. I am very thankful that I am surrounded by family and friends that love me and support me in all that I do and hope they know how much each one of them means to me.
Every year, at the top of my Christmas list, I ask for a kayak and World Peace. Every year I get neither. The want for the former has diminished and turned into a running family joke, while the need for the latter seems like asking for the impossible. I remember a time when that wasn’t so. I remember thinking that one day we would actually all live in harmony. The innocence of youth.
Now I see that innocence when I look into the eyes of my niece and nephew. No bad has touched them and I hope that is the case for a very long time. I want them to keep believing in Santa, wishing on stars, and seeing the world as a place where magic can happen. My belief is that they will be the change we so desperately need but we have to guide them so that they can put World Peace back in the possible column.
Basically what I’m saying is, the children are our future. Teach them well and let them lead the way. This post just took a weird turn.
RIP Whitney! Merry Christmas, all!
