This time of year is always bittersweet for me...while I celebrate Christ's birth and enjoy precious time with family and friends, this is also the time of year that I lost the first man in my life...my father. Though I am saddened each year by that void, and accept fully how that loss has shaped the person I've become, those shadows are tempered by the brilliance of the light that is my mother's love. It is unfailing, unconditional, indestructible...and I thank God for her. As many of my friends have made final goodbyes to their parents, over the last couple of years, I am so grateful for EVERY day God grants me to share with MyMama on this side of Heaven. She is my coach, my champion, and my number one fan...as you celebrate this year, take a moment, step out of the mundane pettiness of your lives and really appreciate your loved ones. Hope you had a Merry Christmas! Peace & Blessings in the new year!!! And that's all folks!
P.S. I know I said I'd be blogging more regularly...but it just hadn't happened yet...maybe that will be my New Year's Resolution...on second thought, nah...Lord KNOWS I never keep those!!!
