There are many beautiful things in the this world, and no matter how much consumerism may have robbed this holiday of its original meaning, we can still use the time to reflect on things and people important to us. In reflection there is appreciation.
And to all a good night.
PS. It is FREAKIN' cold in Ontario. My smile was frozen on my face whilst running back into the bitter wind yesterday. Brrrrrr. But I appreciate soup and hot chocolate and warm showers.
