Children are instinctively drawn to the light of a candle in a dark room. Watching their total absorption and seeing the flame reflected in their eyes is one of the wonderful parts of the Christmas season for me. As adults privileged to work with children, we also need time for quiet reflection. Despite the rush of these days, take time to light a candle. Then consider how to shield and nurture the flame that is in every child you care for.
Merry Christmas from all at Community Playthings!
