Christmas can be bittersweet. If you published this year, you may be experiencing the low that follows. If you’re alone, you may be faced with memories of better Christmases past. If you’ve lost a loved one, the hole may feel much larger this week.

sometimes it’s not…
In our family we understand the sadness that may accompany Christmas. The memories of our loved ones have sustained us in a bittersweet way. We’ve learned to focus on the wonders of life and to take one moment at a time. But even so, some days are overwhelming. We get through those moments mostly by remembering how very blessed we are.
If you’re more happy than you ever thought possible, we rejoice with you. But if you’re hurting this Christmas, if you’re lonely and struggling, please know that my family and I are praying that you experience a peaceful Christmas, Hanukkah and New Year even under the worst circumstances. Prayer may not seem like much, but experience has proven to me that it’s not that God won’t bless you if you let Him. It’s only a matter of accepting the gift despite the pain.
Merry Christmas Everyone!
