This Holiday season, I light a candle in memory of my awesome son. Levi died in a tragic car accident in 2007 at the age of 20. My life was forever changed in a moment. With the love a support of family and friends, I have found the strength to keep moving forward everyday.

I raised Levi as a single parent after my husband, Levi’s father died from complications of his disease. I always tried to make Christmas special for my young son. I remember the day I saved enough money to buy Levi a Game Boy. He told me years later he was surprised I could buy him a great gift. Christmas isn’t in the gifts, the tensile or hung on a tree. Christmas is found in Christ and being surrounded by those you love and hold dear. I have so many treasured memories of raising son from childhood through the tween years-no easy feat. I am so proud of the fine young man he had become. His father would have been so proud also.

For those lighting a candle in honor of a loved one this year,I pray peace, hope, love, courage and strength to get through the difficult days and the grace to keep making lasting memories.

Merry Christmas to all and God Bless.
