It snowed during the night. 

Just a skiff mind you, just enough to get me back into the holiday mood. I put Christmas music on, burning a winter inferno candle, and I have just finished putting together my Victorian village. I am ready. It is sometimes hard to get into the holiday spirit since my son Levi’s death 6 years ago.I would love to buy him his favorite cologne.In his honor, I buy 2 gifts for Toys for Tots.Christmas has sure changed the last few years.But I am keeping a peace in me in knowing my son smiles from heaven and is proud of me.  

There are so many struggling this holiday season. Some families are just trying to put food on the table, others are trying to keep heat in the house. it seems like everyone is going through something this year. I hear so many saying they can’t wait for the new year. Even in our struggles, there is so much to be thankful for everyday. Some have their families they see everyday, hug them extra tight. Some have been through some unimaginable struggles this year, I think they are thankful to be alive. Some feel depressed this time of year, I wish you peace this holiday season.

It does not matter what your circumstances are, how many gifts you can buy this year or not be able to buy. I cherish all the memories I was blessed with of christmas pasts. Watching my son Levi sledding behind his grandpa’s jeep or building a snow fort, seeing his happy cold little face light up drinking hot cocoa. I  have memories of my parents hosting the sledding parties. My dad pulled everyone around the neighborhood in his 1946 Willies jeep. I can always find something to bring a smile to my fac when I start to get depressed. I hope this holiday finds you happy, healthy, and full of grace for even uncle… we had to invite to dinner again this year. It is only for a few hours, and so many don’t have family around them this year. Life is good indeed.
