On this Christmas Day, I wish you joy and peace, with love and laughter of family and friends. A wish for all my readers, no matter where you live or what your faith, of health and happiness on this day and every day.
I wish for a world where tolerance and respect is the norm instead of the exception for all people. I wish for people of different faiths and backgrounds to see others as merely different and not evil. I wish for all to live and let live, to pursue happiness as each sees fit, to learn from one another, to help one another, attend to making their lives as good as they can without tearing down others in the process. I wish for a world where all people spend their energy creating and serving instead of destroying or committing crimes, where the pursuit of excellence and knowledge takes center stage, where honest work is rewarded no matter what the job. I wish for an end to violence in all its forms. I wish for an end to homelessness and hunger. I wish for peace.
I wish for every shelter dog to find a home. (This is our rescue girl from several years ago, we still miss her.)
I wish for everyone to have joy in their lives, and to spread joy to others.
Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukah, Shalom, Seasons Greetings and Happy New Year!
What are your holiday wishes?
