Young girl having fun playing in the park
This Christmas season has been filled with the company and warmth of friends, all wishing to share their best wishes for others. Personally, I made rounds with gifts for some poor families that I know and dined with loved ones. I also I joined with members of the Rotary Club de San Francisco, in hosting a Christmas Party for 150 children from a remote village, high in the Andes Mountains, at a Quito amusement park. Just leaving their village was a treat for them; but, the arrival of Santa and the Disney World like environment lit up their eyes and filled the air with screams of childish delight. You can imagine ! They definitely made my Christmas very special.
While, by the name of the holiday period, it is a Christian holiday celebration, this season is also a time when others join in praying for improvement in the human condition and plan for the New Year. Let us all adopt the simple message, commonly shared - Care for and treat others as we would like to be.
May everyone have a Merry Christmas season and a Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year.
