The healing power of holidays

I do not need to be convinced that holidays are important for the mental health of my family. I only have to look back at our photographs to see the joy in the subtle movements of my children, and the expressions on their faces. Everything that seemed too hard, becomes ok with a bit of distance and perspective. Even kids who couldn’t drag themselves to school a minute longer suddenly get a zest for life that is contagious. Holidays are a precious investment into the health and well being of my family. They’re not sacred, they’re a staple.
