Merry Christmas Eve

In the mix of Christmas shopping, green iced sugar cookies, and holiday specials it's easy to forget there are a group of people who won't be coming home this Christmas because they are overseas. And even though the news reports on Tiger and his long list of lovers, there is still a war going on and many men and women who will not spend the holidays with their families.

So today, my thoughts are with these soldiers with wishes of safe arrivals home (and soon). And of course, what I've wished for each Christmas, for the war to end and the even larger wish of peace.

Peace on earth and peace within each of us.

Merry Christmas to our troops both overseas and here at home. May you travel safely through this world.
