Just a note about Christmas as the snow flies here in Colorado. It's not a lot of snow but the wind makes it a blizzard in Colorado Springs though elsewhere in the state there has been significant accumulations of the white stuff. This time of year is almost magical. It is festive and hectic but the spirit of Christmas is in the air. If love could be measured then Xmas would be overflowing the cup, spilling over and over and over. Sure there is the marketing and hawking of "stuff" but the spirit of Christmas exceeds the materialism of the holiday. The joy of a giggling child, the excitement of gift giving/receiving, the songs, the smiles, the warmth of memories of old and memories being made right now...it is a truly blessed time. So deck the halls and have a great time with family and friends. We can all be the Santas and childlike all over again this year. It is an awesome holiday. Have a MERRY CHRISTMAS from snowbound Colorado!
