The memories of childhood – receiving or giving gifts – when we learn early the blessing of giving is an easy, annual lesson via this time’s celebrations. Some of the warmer memories come from watching children experience the magic of the season of giving. Stories of generosity tied to our celebrations in the world are hundreds of generations old.
We hope that when this letter finds you, you and your family are well. This year has been filled with challenges for all of us. Our hearts and prayers are with all those who have lost a loved one as well as those that are ill and have been deeply affected by the pandemic.
