I was going to talk about the fact that my son is moving home this week from the UK and how glad I am that he will be back in the continental US while I’m also sad that his time there has come to an end. It’s mixed feelings for sure. I know how much he loves it over there but I also know how eager he is to get to work on his career.
So, that was going to be the topic but after the events of Friday, I want to offer a little prayer for these families who are suffering the loss of their children. I also want to say that the suffering of all families who are without loved ones for the first year or the twentieth year are in my thoughts. We’ve had so many losses this year- even some of us here on the backyard blog- that I hope we can all find some semblance of peace in our lives.
Every year, I have a lighted nativity in my yard as well as a snoopy and a sleigh. This year, here’s what I added to the mix. I hope we all have a piece of this in our lives. A piece of peace. I like that. Merry/Happy Christmas to you all. Hold those you love close and treasure the time together.
