Dear God...























Sometimes, for some people, the holidays are difficult.  Sometimes a melancholy sets in; a darkness amidst the twinkling lights and candle glow.  Sometimes it's hard to look at pictures of festive, glamorous over-abundance.  A reminder (to me):  Keep my Higher Power close no matter what; be grateful for what I do have; accept the love from those who care about me; give what I can and let that be OK; and most importantly -  don't give up before the miracle.

  1. I love this post - the letters are so innocent (and funny!)
    I agree - the holidays can evoke a lot of feelings and not all of them joyful but I love that reminder to yourself - those words can help many get through this season. Hope you have a lovely weekend xo
