Just for kicks…this popped up on my Timehop this week and OMG….Dillon gets my vote for most changed this year. He doesn’t even look like the same kid! One year folks…one year!
While Christmas was filled with so much joy for us, I couldn’t help but think about those hurting. I have a sweet friend who lost her 16 year old daughter 2 years ago and knowing the only gift she could ever hope for was not going to be under that tree broke my heart. Another friend lost her brother…her young brother who was just my age…shortly before Christmas and another of my besties lost her dad on Christmas day. While I know their Christmas’ was not as they would have ever planned, we all will surely face years when the joy of Christmas is overshadowed by loss or sadness. I cling to the hope that our one true gift, the gift of our savior will be enough to offer hope and carry us through. Prayers for all of you who are hurting or missing someone every day…but especially at this time of year.
If you made it this far you are a trooper….and I am grateful for you! Thanks for reading along.
Happy New Year!
