Christmas waves it magic wand over the world, and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful. Christmas magic is silent but fierce. You don’t hear it, but you feel it. Deep in a part of your soul that whispers, magic is upon us.
We are days away from Christmas and a bit over a week until we ring in the New Year. The holidays can be the most magical time of the year but can also be the saddest and overwhelming for some. After we lost my Mother-in-law, somehow a bit of that special magic seemed to pass with her. There is always that empty chair where she sat and the laughter she used to bring. And although it has been a while since she has passed the holidays have a way of making the heart ache for her to be here that much more.
Our Angel now in Heaven, we will celebrate you with memories of Christmas past. Bask in your love, that you shine down on us daily. Set aside our sorrow, and concentrate on the joy we shared when you were here. Your presence taught us what Christmas is all about, and that is what we will remember from here on out.
Love is what’s in the room with you at Christmas when we stop opening the presents and listen. Christmas presents isn’t the holiday magic, it’s OUR presence. Sharing our time and hearts with each other. Every time we are kind, every time we are thoughtful, every time we forgive, and every time we are generous, that’s when Christmas magic happens. Blessed is the season which engages the whole world in a conspiracy of LOVE.
To all of my Fabulous Fighters who are missing someone this holiday season, I am wrapping you all in magical holiday love. May your holiday be filled with the spirit of joy, the wisdom of sight, the heart of love, and the soul of light.
May we bask in the joy of all those who have touched our lives and celebrate in memory of those who we are missing.
“And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.” Luke 2:10
Wrapping you all in Magical, Fabulous Love and Light,
