I am surrounded by my family. Those I love absolutely MOST in the world are with me here, right now. And I choose joy.
And so the Christmas Spirit flows freely.
I am CHOOSING to be done wallowing; CHOOSING to start appreciating what I have and CHOOSING to not miss too acutely that which I have lost or choose to leave behind. Letting grief go for a day or three, maybe even five.
Merry Christmas to all. And to all I wish you a time of peace, absolutely true joy and that the love of the season, and the Reason for it, flow freely to you all.
