A Beautiful Christmas Story

The "W" in Christmas

Each December, I vowed to make Christmas a calm and
peaceful experience.

I had cut back on nonessential obligations - extensive
card writing,
endless baking, decorating, and even overspending.

Yet still, I found myself exhausted, unable to appreciate the

precious family moments, and of course, the true meaning
of Christmas.

My son, Nicholas, was in kindergarten that year. It was an
exciting season for a six year old.

For weeks, he'd been memorizing songs for his school's
"Winter Pageant."

Traditional classes for Wedneseday, Dec. 10
