I think the best part of this time of year is the amount of sprinkles and glittery goodness that surrounds us all. And, it’s not just the glued or sewed on glitter that I see. Each day, I run to the mailbox and find these fantastic photo cards with Christmas cheer from my friends and it just puts this great big smile on my face, that I feel sure glitters.
It’s almost like people stop for a moment and remember who their friends are and what life is really all about. I believe, we get so caught up in the everyday, we forget who we really are….everyday. I travelled down to Charleston, South Carolina this past weekend and just fell in love with this small beach town where parents were feeding small babies on the tables, teenage girls were laughing so loud you could hear the roar across the room, and couples were drifting off into bliss watching the fire crackle. I took a few pictures and posted them on Facebook.
Spending time in low country brought the true meaning of Christmas back home for me. I have thought often about the Connecticut community and hope they somehow find comfort soon after such tragedy. I have thought about some of my own family members who are still estranged, not ready to come home. And I have thought about our homeless Veterans who will be alone again for the holiday.
So, to all of you who like to read my blog each week, my message is simple;
May your Christmas be the best is can ever be; May your heart be filled with love and laughter, and may you overflow with joy….even if it’s only for a day, make that day feel like it will last forever.
