A week remains before the observation of Christmas. In this season it is the connection we share with others that gives true meaning. The look of awe and wonder on the faces those we both do and do not know gives cause to wish that, if only for the briefest of moments, to see this world anew. We should give of ourselves, not of the material world, least we forget the warm joy this provides. Turn away from the things and people in life awash in negativity and to the ones we love, let them be told as often as possible, as our time is uncertain.
