Despite it being long past when I should have been in bed on a “school night”, I grabbed some quiet reflection time after decorating the tree earlier in the evening. Glass of prosecco in hand, Christmas music streaming on my phone, and the lights of the tree blinking peacefully in the dark of the midnight hour.
People everywhere wait in anticipation …. for Christmas less than a week away, for the start of Hanukkah which coincides with Christmas Day, for time with family and friends ….
And others wait in anticipation for matters less joyful … the end of war, the opportunity to flee a besieged city ….
May all men, women, and children around the world see a holiday season of peace that carries into the new year.
Ciao! ~ Kat
