Christmas and its trappings.

Join The Conspiracy Of KindnessToday we rearranged some furniture and put up our tree.  A rather small tree.  But a tree.  So our house is starting to feel rather festive.

It seems different this year.

Is it because two kids are in college?

Is it because David is so far away?

I don’t know.

Maybe it is a combination of each of these things.

Rather than focusing on the gifts this year, I think that we should all focus our energies on becoming better people.

After all, Walmart hasn’t been around for 2014 years has it?
