Just as Linus in A Charlie Brown Christmas reminds us of the true spirit of the holidays, this essay by Bob Hinkle, Ph.D., Chief of Outdoor Education at the Cleveland Metroparks, is a simple, but powerful reminder of what we're really looking for at the winter holidays:
Love, time and caring are not obtainable in any mall this season, or any season. They are gifts of the heart, and unique to you and me. They are not found in glittering decorations, or twinkling lights, or in mind-numbing music. They are gifts that are found in small quiet places and unexpected times. You can create them, if you try.
