JOY TO THE WORLD DECEMBER 2022

Although many Holidays have passed since my first Christmas inside a prison, a treasured memory returns every year to my mind. I smile as I picture again the old, upright piano and a happy Prison-Chaplain at Christmas. The middle keys were broken and I had learned to “avoid” playing them so the women could sing …

Thankfulness is a skill we learn best by seeing it modeled. I’m grateful to have grown-up hearing the words “thank you” continually. I saw my Mother and Grandmother often writing lovely thank you notes.
