I think the Christmas Spirit finds us when we least expect it.......in unique and wonderful ways.
This afternoon a few of our friends from our musical think tank came over......I sat and watched them, heard their laughter......and thought about the changes that had taken place in their lives this past year. One has made it through cancer, one has gotten married, one has made major decisions about their career, others who were not there had big changes in their lives too. This has been a year of changes for many of us. But, knowing how everyone's year has been, and then hearing their voices, full of hope and joy.......the Christmas Spirit found my heart.
It has been a year of changes for me too........I have lost friends and family members, struggled with illness and its treatment. But love and hope kept me going, honestly, I think the Christmas Spirit is always around.......it's just called different things at different times of the year.......but it is always about hope, always about love.
This year is winding down fast, just a few more days to Christmas and then New Years. If The Christmas Spirit hasn't found you, it will soon.......just open your heart, your eyes and your ears.
Goodnight Sweet dreams.
