“What is Christmas? It is tenderness for the past, courage for the present, hope for the future… It is a fervent wish that every cup may overflow with blessings rich and eternal, and that every path may lead to peace.”
Yesterday, I came across this wonderful yet very poignant quotation by the late Agnes M. Pharo, a well-respected American writer and artist from the mid-20th century.
We are coming to the end of a very strange and arduous year with Christmas looming around the corner. So, who would have thought that many years on, Agnes’s quote would be even more profound and relevant today?
