Once Upon a Time….



This is the time of year where children’s books take center stage and all around us we see magical stories, Fairies, stardust, Reindeer prancing, Elf’s in fancy hats, jingles bells everywhere and snow falling. Yuletide Christmas Trees are brightly decorated with lights that sparkle, twinkle, and seem to light up the world with their glow.  While dear St. Nick travels afar, just to bring gifts to one and all.  It is a time when we can believe that there is more to the world than we can imagine and the gift of children helps us to believe in a world more wonderful than we know, and that anything is possible, if we just believe it is so.

    Beautiful words, Karen, full of wisdom and heart. ❤️


  5. This is the one last, lingering ambiance of Christmas for me (other than the obligatory religious one): it is the time that we once again remember the simple joys of childhood, warmth, security and love by watching the happiness of children…
