Little Buddy is just beside himself excited about tomorrow. The wonder and magic of children should be spread around the Earth, maybe that is what we all need at Christmas and all year long. It makes you shop and wrap presents when you are coughing so hard you feel like you are losing a lung. It makes you take time to read Christmas books, so full of sweetness and innocence, with a warm little body on your lap. It makes you gather a little one into your arms and hope, just hope, that you are going to make their day special just like he makes every single one of your days. It makes you go outside and make reindeer food even if you are not feeling well, mixing oats and glitter so those reindeer can find your house no matter the weather. And to make even more for the little girls across the street because Santa has to see their house, too. It makes you appreciate the family you have with you and the family you are desperately missing this year. It seems to me that with each passing year I miss my parents more and more, is that possible? It makes you thankful for the friends that add so much to your life. I am talking about all of you in addition to the friends I see and talk to all the time. Friendship takes a lot of time, something we are all short of, it is a gift given all year round. Christmas is a time to sit back and enjoy those around you or simply the solitude of the day, and appreciate the love you have and give everyday.
If you are missing loved ones I send you love. If you are overwhelmed by family, cooking and chaos I send you patience. If you are alone don't worry, I am sending you a hug and friendship. If you feel like you have lost your way, I am sending you hope for a new direction. If you have lost your home due to some horrific disaster, I pray that all becomes right again. I pray that our lives, in this country and all around the world feel less stressful in the coming year. We all deserve a break from the chaos and stress that greet us daily. I wish you all peace and love. Thank you for being here in this space of mine. Have a lovely holiday.
