'Tis the season for Christmas cards, shopping, and teacher, coach and visiting teaching gifts.
'Tis the season for adorable kindergarten singing programs. You think all the wildly-waving, camera-wielding parents look silly until you realize you're one of them!
Funny how proud you can feel as your five-year-old belts out Rudolph and rings her jingle bell.
'Tis the season for friends and family.
And 'tis the season for my annual--meaning, every single Christmas--bout with laryngitis. Why does it have to be at Christmas? I want to be able to sing Rudolph, too! You just don't realize how much you want and need your voice until it's gone. And mine is really gone.
It really is the most wonderful time of the year. Now Santa, can you please bring me my voice for Christmas?
