There’s a line in the Christmas play that Laura Ambler and I wrote (The Santa Diaries) that seems perfect for this time of year.
When the character, Will Hawes, knows he will eventually take his place in the long line of Santas in his family, he says, “I finally realized that people still want the same things; a hug, a laugh, a kind word, to not be lonely, and maybe even find a soul mate. And not just at Christmas.”
So lets all laugh and hug (appropriately), and be more kind. The world will be a better place.
Happy New Year!
