December has always been one of my favorite months. All the bright lights and the feeling of love, joy and hope waft through the air. It always feels like we are enveloped in a month-long “celestial embrace.”
People are more accepting and extend brotherly love. I see a sparkle or a twinkle in the eye. Joy is all around and there is an innate desire to give … it is contagious. You can’t help be a part of the moment. Love is in the air, and it is everywhere.
The holidays of 2020 suddenly came. It entered our lives fraught with confusion and uncertainty; frankly, an unimaginable and challenging year. I hear myself saying. “Santa how about a do-over?”
It pretty much sums up how most of us feel. There are only a couple of weeks left in the year, please leave, go and close the door tight, don’t leave it ajar, even so slight! “Merry Christmas, Pandemic Year 2020.”
People want to put this year behind … I want it to be another time. I can’t wait for a new and more positive year to show up. All I can say is, “What a year, but we rolled with it.”
Remember some original reasons for the season? Happiness, goodwill to men, health, wisdom, and hope? I am grateful, I have my family and my friends.
It has been a difficult year, and YOU are not alone. We may not be able to celebrate the holidays together, but you are in my heart, so near, and most certainly dear.
May Christmas bring you good tidings, miracles and love abound. We are together in spirit; and we are close; our connection is very strong. I hope you stay well, and please be safe. We are all striving to be in a good place.
Merry Christmas, Pacific Palisades, I certainly do miss you!
