And now that we’ve vented our spleen a bit, it’s time to return to the true spirit of the season.
Obviously, with everything that’s been and is going on and with all the bills etc., Christmas isn’t quite the same this year, but we’ve got a little Christmas tree and the Heirs’ Christmas presents have been secured.
And, most importantly, they’re here, which is more than a lot of people can say this Christmas.
Our thoughts go out to all of our brave soldiers overseas who won’t be home for Christmas, those wonderful people who are the reason that we have what we have. May G-d Bless you and bring you home safe.
They also go out to the families of those who’ve given their lives for us and who won’t be seeing their loved ones until the hereafter.
The gift your loved ones gave us is the most precious gift of all, and we want you to know that you’re in our thoughts this Christmas and all of the Christmasses to come. That cannot possibly make up for your loss, but know that we’re deeply conscious of your loss and eternally grateful. You are not forgotten, nor shall you ever be.
And that’s why we, no matter how tight things are right now at the Imperial Palace and no matter what kind of trouble we’re facing, we know that we really have no reason to complain. And we won’t. We’ll instead thank G-d Almighty for what we do have.
G-d Bless and Keep You All.
