This year, something has changed in me. I was anxious to put up my tree and break out the holly. I'm seeking joy this year. Yes, I still miss my dad more than anything and I hate moving forward without him, but I know I have to live among the living. I know life is short and I don't want to look back with any regrets.
My message to you is to enjoy this holiday season. Make the most of the time with your family and friends. Relish the time you have with them. It is precious and fleeting! Love is all we truly have in this life. It's the only thing that lasts (despite what Scarlett O'Hara's father said). It binds us all together and makes the whole experience worthwhile.
Have a loving and magical Christmas season! May it last all year through! Where there is love there is Christmas!
