A dear friend of my heart is going through a tragedy....she wrote on her blog, "there will be no Christmas for this family this year". Her son was in a tragic car accident and his condition has been touch and go. You'll recognize her from the encouraging quotes she leaves here on my blog. She is my sweet friend, Darlene. Please pray for her, her son and her family this week and Christmas.
It's amazing how stressed we get this time of year, really at the most ridiculous things. We get so wrapped up in trite and silly details. Something like this happens and puts perspective back in place. My heart has been heavy all day, and I want to send out this reminder: This year, this time, this season lets all STOP and be truly thankful for our loved ones, and let them know how you feel. Put your energy back into your family, not the wrapping paper and bows and dinner menus, and price tags. Life is so much more precious than we know, and at any, any moment it can all change......... Hug and love and cherish your children, your parents, your spouse, your friends. Make this Christmas mean something in your home this year, because there are those that aren't getting one this year.
