The holidays are upon us and families are gathering, both near and far, to be with the ones they love. One reason we treasure the holidays is that it reminds us of our childhoods, and the wonder and excitement that comes with this time of year.
Being the father of a 4-year-old girl and 3-year-old boy, my children are in the prime of the holiday spirit. Their new sense of wonder and amazement at the colored lights, the pageantry, and the anticipation (of course!) of this season serves as a constant reminder to me of the many gifts we have, which we too often take for granted.
