Merry Christmas to all…. “Reflect upon your present blessings… of which every man has many… not on your past misfortunes, of which all men have some… I will honor Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year.” Charles Dickens ???????????????????? Feliz Natal a todos…… "Enfeite a árvore de sua vida com guirlandas de gratidão! Coloque no coração laços de cetim rosa, amarelo, azul, carmim. Decore seu olhar com luzes brilhantes estendendo as cores em seu semblante. Em sua lista de presentes em cada caixinha embrulhe um pedacinho de amor, carinho, ternura, reconciliação, perdão! Tem presente de montão no estoque do nosso coração e não custa um tostão! A hora é agora! Enfeite seu interior! Seja diferente! Seja reluzente!" Cora Coralina
