Kathy's Christmas Wishes.....
"It sounds cliched, but I truly wish for “Peace on earth, goodwill to men.” This quote comes from the Christmas carol, “It Came Upon a Midnight Clear,” which is based on Luke 2 and the Annunciation to the Shepherds in the Bible. What does this mean to me? We live in a world where various peoples do not get along, some because of religious reasons, some because of moral or societal beliefs, some because of misunderstandings, need, or greed, or power. To me, Christmas is about loving one another as best we can. In our very real world, I try hard to put this into practice. People tend to be frenzied during the holidays and I do what I can to spread good cheer. Sometimes this just means giving a friendly smile when one is needed. Sometimes this means donating money, goods or items to charity. Sometimes this means volunteering. We get to decide what we have to offer, and by offering it we are bringing the world one step closer to peace. Big steps often begin with tiny ones. I wish this season we can all make tiny steps toward achieving peace and goodwill."

Fondest Christmas Memory...
"I have two fondest Christmas memories, but they are related :) 

 At Christmas when I was expecting my second child, I took my oldest, then four years old, to the toy store to consider some things he’d like for Christmas. One thing we discussed was finding a life-like baby doll so he could learn how to hold him and change his diapers. He was extremely interested in how to best take care of a baby and this baby doll was on the top of his Christmas list. We located the aisle with the baby dolls in the toy store, and went and looked at the selection. My oldest son looks like me, with dark brown hair and eyes, dominant traits. I pointed out a life-sized soft baby doll that looked like us. My son shook his head and pointed to a doll with pale blond hair and blue eyes. “This one.” “Don’t you want one that will look like your baby?” I asked. “This one does,” he insisted. I tried to explain about genetics, about his father having brown hair and green eyes, but nothing doing. At last, with tears in his eyes, he pleaded, “But Mommy, I prayed to Jesus for a baby brother with golden hair and blue eyes. This one looks like him.” What could a mother do? For Christmas, that baby doll was under the Christmas tree. And his prayer was answered in May when I gave birth to a baby boy with golden hair and blue eyes that looked uncannily like the baby doll. Whenever their father or I saw that baby doll, we’d often mistake him for our child — they looked that much alike. 

 When my sons were 5-1/2 and 1-1/2, I took them to the local mall to have their photos taken with Santa Claus. The mall was beautifully decorated, with enormous Christmas bulbs dangling from overhead, fake snow and elves wandering around in bright greens and reds. There was even a Christmas train we all rode. After the train, we got in line to see Santa and the boys and I talked about what they’d each ask Santa for Christmas. I remember something about Ninja Turtles and Care Bears. It took about half an hour to work our way to Santa and my youngest son was first. A pert elf took his hand and he toddled toward Santa. About two feet away, he stopped dead. The elf tugged his hand, but nothing doing. He took one look at Santa’s bushy white beard and bowl full of jelly, and screamed as if his life depended on it. There was no way he was going to sit on that big guy’s lap! I tried comforting him, but it didn’t help. My eldest son stepped forward. “Don’t worry, Mommy. He’ll be okay," and took his little brother's hand. “Do you want to tell Santa what you want for Christmas? Let’s go see him together.” He led his little brother forward and helped him onto one of Santa’s legs, while he climbed on the other. The photo was snapped, and it’s one of the sweetest I own of my two boys: Santa is holding them on his lap, and my oldest son is smiling lovingly at his little golden-haired and blue-eyed brother, and there are dried tears in the eyes of my smiling youngest. You never know when life is going to reach out and yank your heartstrings. Whenever I glance at that photo, it touches me deeply."
