The Preserve's Essence of Christmas

January 5, 2023
It was a special day set apart from all others. With laughter and smiles, our holiday celebration was filled with the magic of Christmas! We were reminded of the true holiday spirit from our yesteryears and the days we took it all in with childlike wonder and awe, making our chronological ages insignificant. Feelings and emotions flooded the forefront of our minds. There were sweet frosted cookies surrounded by brightly colored gifts and ribbons everywhere, not to mention a photo booth set up for us to capture and preserve these precious moments in time.

When to our wondering eyes should appear? It was jolly Santa himself pulling his sleigh filled with gifts! He asked us, "Are you on the 'good' list or the 'naughty' list?" We all quickly and unanimously established that our names would most certainly be found on the "good" list... for the most part! Rudolph was a bit under the weather, but that didn't stop our little elves from distributing personalized gifts from our wish lists resulting in exactly what we had hoped for! Excited anticipation began to build as we watched and waited for the arrival of a beautifully wrapped treasure presented by one of Santa's elves.

The greatest surprise was not the gift itself, but the depth of love felt by the 'elves' as the joy in their eyes penetrated deep within our hearts. Christmas love became redefined, and the true meaning of Christmas became illuminated for all of us. How grateful we are to not only be reminded of but to experience the essence of Christmas in its most tangible form. It may be simplified into one small yet complex word... LOVE!
