“Somehow he gets thoughtful, sitting by himself so much, and thinks the strangest things you ever heard. He told me, coming home, that he hoped the people saw him in the church, because he was a cripple, and it might be pleasant to them to remember upon Christmas Day, who made lame beggars walk, and blind men see.“ – Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol
So I decided to take some time off this week. Time to be with family, add on to our already awesome personal Sodor with the 200 miles of new wooden track my kids got for Christmas, and begin reading one of the best gifts I ever received – The Complete Calvin and Hobbes. It’s also given me some time to think – which quite honestly, is one of my favorite pastimes.
