Yes Virginia There is a Santa Claus

Hi and thanks for stopping by.
Don't you love the story of eight year old Virginia O'Hanlon?  She's the little girl who wrote the famous letter to the Sun Times newspaper asking "Please tell me the truth, is there a Santa Claus?"  The response was "Yes Virginia, there is a Santa Claus.  He exists as certainly as love and generosity and devotion exist, and you know that they abound and give to your life its highest beauty and joy.  Alas! how dreary would be the world if there were no Santa Claus.  It would be as dreary as if there were no Virginias.  There would be no childlike faith then, no poetry, no romance to make tolerable this existence."  
Amen to that!  If you'd like to read this delightful article go here.  This story always fills me with such hope and inspiration especially this time of year.  I for one believe in Santa Claus and always will.  :)   Above is a new charm I made with this in mind.
Take care and have a wonderful weekend.
