December 17, 2004 Chautauqua


From the Editor's Computer     

   Last Sunday night I saw a shooting star streak across the night sky…and I made a wish…

   My wish for you is that...you have happiness no matter what is happening in your life...friends to share your joys and your sorrows with...you have a task that is not only meaningful, but also contributes to making the world a better place...you know that you are loved, even if it feels like everyone and everything is against you…and, that the magic of this Christmas season and the true meaning behind the traditions will give you hope!

December 3, 2004 Chautauqua


From the Editor's Computer     

   I am finding it hard to believe that it has been two whole weeks since I last typed an editorial.  Where, oh where, is this year going?

   The days, weeks and months have been flying by at lightning speed.  Plus, there are just not enough days in the weeks anymore.

   Do you remember how time dragged when you were waiting for Christmas as a child.  The anticipation and excitement kept building as the days counted down...very s-l-o-w-l-y.  It seemed like Santa would never get here.

   Many of us have lost that sense of anticipation and excitement in our lives.  We are so caught up in our routines and “have to’s” that we overlook the excitement of life around us.  We fret and fume about Christmas shopping and preparations, that we’ve forgotten the anticipation that we felt as a child.

   Let us try and slow time down a bit as we recapture our youthful excitement of the miracle of the Christmas season.
