being merry and bright


'Twas the night before Christmas, a boy looks outside his window and wishes upon the brightest star. He wishes for mummy and daddy to live forever, so that they'll always be there to take care of him. He wishes for presents, he prays for his family. Most of all, he hopes Santa rides safely and comes soon.

The boy is now a man. A man who wishes for love and happiness. Of peace ever after. He prays for a better tomorrow and kisses his mother goodnight. He also wishes for presents but doesn't mind if he doesn't get any. As long as he's happy.

Tonight, all of us will be somewhere making wishes and prayers. It doesn't matter what religious faith we follow. 'Tis the season of giving, sharing and caring. My wish is for all of us is to love in a world proud of the celebration of life. Tomorrow is Christmas Day.

Tonight we live. Tomorrow we unwrap our wishes.

I wish you peace in your heart always, that will eternally radiate outwards and touch and inspire everyone whose path you cross. Beyond labels of nationality, religion, colour, there is real greatness to be found. The binding strength of true friendship, that is at the core of the celebration of life. Without this, we are nothing but a waste of time and space. There ,my friend, you inspire me! Peace always.
