23 Dec Merry Christmas!
Christmas waves a magic wand over this world, and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful. ~Norman Vincent Peale
We wanted to commemorate this special time with a few of our favorite quotes:
Christmas is a necessity. There has to be at least one day of the year to remind us that we’re here for something else besides ourselves. ~Eric Sevareid
Blessed is the season which engages the whole world in a conspiracy of love! ~Hamilton Wright Mabie
I sometimes think we expect too much of Christmas Day. We try to crowd into it the long arrears of kindliness and humanity of the whole year. As for me, I like to take my Christmas a little at a time, all through the year. And thus I drift along into the holidays – let them overtake me unexpectedly – waking up some find morning and suddenly saying to myself: “Why, this is Christmas Day!” ~David Grayson
And we’ll end with our favorite:
The best of all gifts around any Christmas tree: the presence of a happy family all wrapped up in each other. ~Burton Hillis
We appreciate all that you do for families every day of the year, but none more than during this special time.
Merry Christmas from our homes to yours!
