"Isn't it funny that at Christmas
something in you gets so lonely for -
I don't know what exactly,
but it's something that you don't mind so much
not having at other times."
Kate L. Bosher

Christmas is hard at our house. I'd simply rather not go through it but feel I must for the sake of my mom and dad. Today, my goal is to write down blessings to share tomorrow morning in hopes that verbalizing them will begin changing the fiber of our family. We'll see if Christmas miracles truly happen.

Your site is so cheery. Hope your Christmas ends up being cheery too.

BTW, the photo really speaks to me. It is rather how I envision my own Christmas predicament. Weird, huh?

Debi, thank you for your Christmas greeting and for all the nice comments you've left on my site. I've been neglecting my blog, but I do intend to get back to it.

Wishing you and yours a quiet, peaceful, beautiful Christmas.

That quotation really strikes a chord in me - how true it feels! Thank you for your lovely kind words, today and always, and I wish for you that miracle you seek this Christmas... counting blessings is such a great way to start the energy moving... :)

I don't know that any adult can truly say that Christmas is easy for him or her; life just seems to get too complicated and so many things get in the way of finding the happiness we could once tap into as children. Your openness and honesty speaks directly to my heart and I wish for you the merriest Christmas that it is within your power to have.

Merry Christmas! I hope things turn out well for you. This is kind of a sad one for us too since we can't go home to Alabama this year. It doesn't really seem much like Christmas.

I find that if something bothers us....some concept...or an idea such as Christmas...we can re-define it to bring us to a place that makes us feel good. So Christmas can mean many things. We can bring in new meaning to events as if they were birthed from our very souls.

Hi GHT, Christmas really shines a light on all our dark spots (and sore spots), doesn't it.

I hope some peace and joy is finding itself coming your way. Wishing you many Christmas miracles.

I looked around and saw the blessings that I did have and focused on the delights before me.
Wishing you Christmas miracles and peace in your heart.
