I read this a couple of weeks back and thought, how quiet that must have been. How joyous. How wonderful to know you were alive and he was alive and even though no one accepted them yet, they were a family. All was calm and all was bright, and in that moment perhaps they felt it was enough. They were enough.
And then I thought about this apt quote from Dr. Seuss:
And the Grinch, with his Grinch-feet ice cold in the snow, stood puzzling and puzzling, how could it be so?
It came without ribbons. It came without tags. It came without packages, boxes or bags. And he puzzled and puzzled ’till his puzzler was sore. Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn’t before. What if Christmas, he thought, doesn’t come from a store. What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more.
Whatever you are doing today or tomorrow know simply I love you because you are human. We all need a little love in our lives, hmm? Merry Christmas, happy Holidays and enjoy the possibilities of a New Year!
