Christmas has arrived. The weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas have quickly passed, with carols sung, presents bought, and holiday decorations plastered everywhere. Offices are closing, work has slowed down, and the tree has been decorated. We gather with our closest friends and family, and the spirit of giving and of love takes wing.
I saw the most adorable scene today while I was picking up presents for my parents. A young child was helping her mother behind the counter at the candy shop, boxing my candy and wrapping the boxes. When she spilled the first one all over the floor by accident, she apologized profusely. But how could I be angry? I had to stifle my laughter, and when I left, I wanted to pay even more. The service may have been a little slower, but it was friendlier than most any I’ve received.
