One of my favorite times of year has arrived. The festivities and holidays this month brighten what begins a dreary season with warmth and joy. I hope every time you see this picture on your computer you remember the happiness of family gatherings, the glow in a child’s eye, and the smell of pine as it mingles with the scent of a roaring fire. Let’s celebrate the season with memories of our best times and our deepest wonders. Whatever holiday you celebrate may it touch your soul.
