Ode to Joy

See the joy of a child!
During this time before Christmas
I receive so many mails and letters with
stories and complaints about the stressful
rush, the
gifts still to
make and buy, the Christmas cards or round-robin-letters to be written and mailed or posted, the list of things to do before Christmas - as if the world would come to an end with the celebration of Christ's birth. Take a moment! Look at this smiling child! Listen to a moment in this special time of joy:

Twenty years after the fall of the wall, hundreds of people join Paul Potts in singing Beethoven's ode of joy in the Leipzig main station.

He is one happy, handsome guy! It brought instant smile to my heart. Though my needles are clicking furiously, I do try to remembering the reason for the season. Thanks for the gentle reminder, my friend.
