Christmas really came fast this year, and even now, it’s hard for me to think it’s over.
I was really in the Christmas spirit, too. My classroom was decorated to a tee. I’ve show others extraordinary patience and kindness to others, including forgiving grouchy people who repeatedly ran their shopping carts into me on Black Friday, taking extra time out to talk with people who just need to talk to someone this time of year, and yeilding to people whose road rage caused them to do something unwise.
In fact, now that the holiday has passed, I don’t want the serenity and joy I’ve gained during this intense, but short Christmas season to end. Christmas may be the celebration of Jesus’s birth, and it’s a time of year that reminds us of the spark of divinity in all of us. But He’s more than a birthday. Yes, I hear an odd calling. I know what I have to do.
I’m going to keep this going as long as I can.
