The Spirit of Christmas

                  What is the Spirit of Christmas to you?


This has been an especially hard Christmas season of unforeseen crises and friends with loved ones seriously ill. Families rushing to get a gift and yet the gift of a cup of coffee or a time spent listening to a friend is all we truly need. As a child all I wanted was something pretty wrapped up under that tree. Thankfully I realize that there is no wonderous gift I can find under that pretty pine tree, that the true Christmas gift is that little baby laying in the Manger. Have a Blessed Christmas ,Cheri
