I woke up this morning with bad thoughts…..ready to bemoan the death of my mother. I realized that is not the spirit of the season. My mother would not want that. I shook it of. I told myself to be happy…thank God it was as simple as that! I put a smile on my face, thought happiness and it was so!
As I dressed I thought of all the happy memories associated with my Mom and realized we all have to carry on. This can be a hard time for many people but we all have to keep things in perspective and remember the good and bad times and keep our memories close.
As I came down the stairs, I saw that my son had slept over and was overcome with happiness with my role of mother and that Christmas is here and so will my family be here with me to share this wonderful time of year and comfort me in my hidden pain.
My husband was waiting for me with a big smile and hug…..life goes on….thus the circle of life!
I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy and prosperous New Year!
