Soul Food #69
It's that beautiful time of the year when we celebrate a very special birth~
I know that every year my thoughts can get excited ..and happy because of my family..my little grandchildren.. the beauty of the snow..The memories of years gone by.. Mass.. being with my own parents..my family..
But melancholy can set in.. when visions of certain people no longer with us twirl in our minds..And all the commercialism.. can make one cringe.. Too much "stuff"...
All in all I've been pretty blessed..there have been times of course..like everyone..
It's the first time in many many years..that I am actually realizing that all this Christmas cheer..the songs on the radio..the loud Christmas Specials on TV with people dancing around ..all smiles... are not for everyone..
I know some are probably very blue around this time of year.. alone.. fearful..sick..homeless..missing someone special..
It's not for everyone to revel in Good Tidings of Joy~to ring in a New Year.. to party and be merry~
I just want to say that this year..in particular..I am thinking about you all.. and I hope ..in some way..you have a blessed Christmas.. Perhaps by thinking of what it really is about..some comfort will be had.
By looking into ourselves..for peace.
My little wax Jesus has stood the test of time.. he must be as old as I am.. 56..he's missing an arm.. his facial features are fading.. his hair is sparser..
But I love him to bits.. He's every Christmas I ever had.
And every Christmas I hope to have~Watching 4 little boys grow up~and partaking actively in their precious lives~
