Dear Clara – Christmas Lights
One evening recently, Gigi and I recently attended the light show at Butchart Gardens. It was spectacular. People were there with their families, including little children. I saw a grandfather running after his grandchildren, and thought of you. I remembered how, on your first visit to Butchart Gardens, you rode the merry-go-round there. I thought of you again as I was admiring the lights. Christmas lights remind me of how life can sometimes be full of excitement and unlimited possibilities. This was the way life was for me when you were born, and for almost two years afterward, while Gigi and I could still see you. Those two years were among the happiest of my life. I hope one day when you are old enough, you will decide to come back into our lives and I can take you to the 20?? Magic Christmas light show.
May God bless you and may the light of Christ enter your life this holiday season.
