Merry Christmas 🎄

I wish you all a Merry Christmas and hope you had a blessed Christmas weekend.

We woke to sad news today. My oldest daughters friend lost her sister unexpectedly this Christmas morning. At only fifteen years old. My heart has just broken for the family and friends.

It’s a tragic reminder to us. We are never guaranteed tomorrow. We don’t know the day we will leave this world behind.

I might be a broken record with this, but I cannot say it enough. Give love. Let the ones you love know you love them. Let them feel it in the deepest parts of their heart. That’s what matters. Be there for your children. Teach them to show their love. Love is not based on material things. It’s you. Being present. Being a light in someone’s life. Caring for them, listening, and making their time here a bit sweeter.

I’ve been thinking a lot about that lately. Life gets so busy and unfortunately it’s usually a lot of unnecessary busy. Filling our days and time with mundane things. I’m never just relaxing. I constantly have things to do. If it’s not one thing it’s something else. And all I really want to do on an everyday basis is be with my kids, drink coffee, laugh til I have tears, and forget everything else. Forget trying to have an always company ready home. Forget stressing about my knitting business. Forget thinking about past regrets. Forget trying to please people who could care less. And yet it’s so hard to do that.

To anyone who’s grieving this Christmas, for a recent loss or a past loss, I know your pain and I send hugs and prayers your way. But just remember: your lost loved one has no more pain or sorrow. They would want you to be joyful and live your life happy. Don’t let them down.

Merry Christmas!

  1. What a nice post! We heard about Mia this morning and sang a song after church, in her memory. We’re feeling the pain and loss the family is going thru! Losing a child, no matter the age is so heartbreaking! Our comfort her on earth is that we can believe they no longer will feel any pain or suffering and are resting in eternal glory!!!

    1. ❤️ it’s also a blessing for the family to have so many to uplift and give comfort. After my dad died, I realized how lucky we are to have so many people to help us. I don’t think we would have made it through without them.

  2. It certainly is. We are so lucky to have so many escorts in faith.
