I now interrupt our regular fashion & shopping schedule to bring you an important message about spirit and life. I interrupt my abundant gifting, my over-COACHing, my over eBaying, my silly gifts-for-me disguised as my pet’s. I even interrupt my horrid Finals project & essay. (And I honestly interrupt my time-wasting web browsing.)
Yes, instead of a shopping-carol, I bring you the wisdom of Dr. Seuss, PhD:
Every Who down in Whoville, the tall and the small, was singing—without any presents at all. He hadn’t stopped Christmas from coming, it came! Somehow or other, it came just the same! And the Grinch, with his Grinch feet ice cold in the snow, stood puzzling and puzzling, how could it be so? It came without ribbons. It came without tags. It came without packages, boxes or bags. He puzzled and puzzed ’til his puzzler was sore. Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn’t before: “maybe Christmas,” he thought, “doesn’t come from a store. Maybe Christmas perhaps, means a little bit more.” … And what happened next? Well in Whoville they say that the Grinch’s small heart grew three sizes that day. And then the true meaning of Christmas came through, and the Grinch found the strength of ten Grinches, plus two.
Christmas day is in our grasp, so long as we have hands to clasp. Christmas day will always be, just so long as we have we. Welcome Christmas, while we stand, heart-to-heart, and hand-in-hand.
And now I continue on a little break, while I work on school. We do have our 1 year birthday coming up! I will do my best to put a little something together. Meanwhile, maybe we can all take a little break and focus on the true spirit of the holidays.
