I'm hoping that all you are well and that the day ahead is calm and perfect for you all. I know that everyone is crazy busy and that life can get away from us pretty fast these days. But remember that there out here in the universe someone less lucky then us is struggling, someone is hurting and that this week is not for all the delightful season it should be. I pray that you are all well. That no harm nor sorrow will find it's way to your door.
My Christmas wish of the day:
For Ang and her family: That the days and years ahead will be a soft place to fall each and everyday. That while the kids grow and learn to be, your heart will know that the world will be kind to them all. That you will not have to search for peace but that it lives within you always. That time will stop long enough every now and again at just the right moment for you to enjoy it just a little longer then enough. I too wish that there is rest for you at the end of the day. I am grateful for your sisterhood and the balance and joy you have shared....That the years will bring what money can not...Your life is always treasured by those you touch...
That Bondo and his family are having a joyous time together....That the world is always right with you. That your artistic hands dance with joy and whimsy as you spread your true gifts as wide as the world. That your kids are safe and fearless always. That their being will as it has bring you more than one man could ever hope for. You are treasured and missed here and loved more than you know. That you continue to have a big life...You deserve it...That the blessings will linger forever if only in your heart.
Inkling and her beloved are having a wonderful time creating a lifelong traditions together on this very special first Christmas as newlyweds. That Inkling never ever losses her joys and excitement about the small but priceless treasures she finds in her sweetheart. That they are forever thrilled that just being is enough. That our Inkling will be blessed with good health. That H.D. stays warm if from no place but his heart. What a treasure to have each other and those that surround them. But most of all I wish them that they always stay as one with the world even when family and friends seem to be too far away.
To Grace: That you are forever easier on yourself. That you find silence even when it seems impossible. That you as a mom and wife find joy each and every day in your family and friends. That you know that a prayer each night far to the west is said for you and yours. That you find time heals as well as returns all things. That no matter the hour or the day that you are right there to know the love that is bestowed on you. That the blessings you have will always be just right. That when you are old and a grandma that the delight of youth makes you forever young at heart. But most of all my wish for you this Christmas is that you be as you are....Loved, treasured, kind, funny and that your heart bursts with joy by being Graced...
Lauren: That your faith and strength in family and friends as are forever yours. That being a mommy, a wife, a daughter and a friend leaves you filled with more than you could even know. That the blessings in your life continue and are passed to the those you love. That the smallest moments in life tend to be the ones you treasure most. That the Lord watches over you as He has for so long. That you will find time to be surrounded by those friends that you never get to see enough of...Most of all I wish for you that joyful days out number the sorrowful ones.
Farmwife: That the boots multiply on your porch as you and yours welcome yet another baby. That the spirit of love lives forever within your world. That time slows long enough for you to be in awe of so many blessings. That being a mommy gives you all the joy that there is...That being a wife fills you with strength and courage that only you can know. That love always over flows in your home with the daily things of life. That each and every night you fall peacefully asleep in all the blessings that the good Lord has given to you.
