Some holiday seasons are bittersweet. Maybe you’ve lost a parent in the past year, but you also have beautiful children in your life—and you want to make Christmas joyful for them. Or someone in your family is stationed overseas, so how can the holidays be the same?
I guess it all comes down to love—
Love for the ones who’ve gone before us…
for the ones too far away…
for the ones comfortingly near.
That’s what keeps us going.
If I could reach out across time and space,
I would take the hand of every person
I have ever loved,
and draw them all close to me.
And that would be happiness.
And that would be Christmas.
From our family to yours, Merry Christmas!
