It’s Christmas Eve!!
This is my favorite time of year. It is a magical time.
This year feels even more special, I had a little bit of a miracle happen. I found the snowman ornament that I had made back when I was in kindergarten. It had a black top hat, a green flowery scarf, and red mittens and boots. I thought I lost it two or three years ago. I searched for it in every box, but couldn’t find it. It made me incredibly sad to lose something so special. But, something happened this year, without even trying, as I’m opening a box of decorations, I lifted the tissue paper, and there it was. My snowman. I cried. I cried so much. My daughters asked what was happening and I hugged my mom. We both understood the significance of that snowman. That was me, as a child. My dreams, my hopes for life, as I was just beginning mine. To lose it, was devastating and at the time, I was myself lost. But moving forward, my future has brought me back and brought me to the ones that love me. My snowman came back at just the right moment in my life. I feel so incredibly blessed to have my girls and my parents and to have peace and love in my home. I hung the snowman right in the center of the tree, with its black top hat and broad red-dotted smile, where it’s supposed to be.
I wish for you, your own Christmas miracle, peace and love within yourself and your loved ones.
