“La voix de la sagesse c’est de commencer à désirer ce qu’on a déjà”

Jean François Marie Arouet

Dear readers and fellow bloggers:

Good morning and Merry Christmas to you. Today we are awaiting the renewed birth of Jesus Christ, our Savior, with the hope that this terrible pandemic will eventually pass away and we will go back to a more benign environment. We just listened to the words of our dear Pope Francis admonishing us that unbridled consumerism has hijacked the significance of this festivity; he urged us all to give a charitable gift, instead of splurging on unnecessary objects.

As Arouet’s saying advises us: “the voice of wisdom is to start coveting what we already have.”

We have our health. We have our family. We have our friends. We have our work and studies. It is a lot already.

Sadly, we will not have a traditional family meal this time, as our daughter Noël Marie stays away for safety reasons. However, we will communicate via WhatsApp, sharing pictures and videos to feel “a little closer” momentarily. We will hope and pray that we will soon meet again in Saint Patrick’s Church for a mass and then go out for dinner. The picture we posted is of one such event in the summer of 2019. We are counting the days for a blessed reunion.

Merry Christmas!

Feliz Navidad!

Joyeux Noël!

Buon Natale!

Stay distant. Stay safe. Stay beautiful.

What do you think? Please tell us.

Don’t leave me alone.
