At church the kids were given an Advent wreath, candles and the banners to color that say Hope, Joy, Peace and Love.
So I asked him "What does Christmas mean?" He looked at me rather puzzled. "Peace - what does Peace mean?"
"Try to get along" he said.
Me: "Joy, what does Joy mean?"
Charlie: "Be happy"
Me: "Love - what does Love mean?"
Charlie: "Be nice to each other"
Me: "What does Hope mean?"
Charlie: "Hope we have a good day"
In the beautifully simple terms of a child, we wish you and yours Peace, Joy, Love and Hope this season.
Mr. Thornton, Marquel, Annie, Charlie and Chip
