I met the most incredible woman tonite.
Her name is Ellen.
Ellen is in College, and everyone around the table had an idea of what she should 'become'.
I thought in that moment, she already IS.
I, for one, hope she grows up to be herself.
That will be the best gift of all that she can give to the world's future.
She and her mother had something in common - an interest in others, and a keen sense of listening.
During this Christmas Eve and throughout Chanukah, may you take a moment to just do that.
And when you do speak, speak from the heart, speak from your true self.
Because you just may never know who's listening.
