Merry Christmas

While I know the holidays look different this year, there is so much to be grateful for. We as a family have experienced loss. It makes the holidays so bittersweet. There are however, so many things that we can be grateful for.

I shared this on my Facebook page but wanted to share here as well. I am reminded as I pass my eighth year since my cancer diagnosis (November 2), that ‘each day is a gift.’

Speaking of gifts, Christmas is about a gift from above. Baby Jesus brought hope on the first Christmas and boy do we need hope these days. You may celebrate a different way that I, but we can all agree that we need hope. It’s essential. I’m wishing you that in 2021.

I’m hoping you will experience peace, joy, and hope this Christmas.

Wishing you great love. Thank you for the gift you are to my life.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.
