And To You and Yours

NASA
Somewhere in the world tonight, a small child with a fear of the dark is sleeping in the dark.


Somewhere in the world tonight, a family is embracing a foster child fiercely and wholeheartedly.


Somewhere in the world tonight, a man who woke up married is going to bed a widower.


Somewhere in the world tonight, a woman is giving birth to a baby she knows she cannot keep.


Somewhere in the world tonight, a grandmother is learning how to read.


Somewhere in the world tonight, an ordinary person is holding a hand, keeping a stranger from dying alone.

Merry Christmas to heroes the world over.

(I've been unnaturally quiet the last week because the youngest was much sicker than we thought. He's on the mend, the meds are on the wane, and tonight I'm looking forward to a possible full night of sleep, the first in a week. I'm giddy with anticipation.)
