Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

The holidays are upon us, and I wanted to take the time to tell each and every one of you how much I appreciate you, my readers and my friends. I hope the best for each one of you, and since I’m a writer, I wrote a little something that tries to convey that. Have the Merriest Christmas and the Happiest New Year!

Christmas Gifts I Wish For You:

 Peace in your heart of hearts

Refuge from the storms of life

The bliss of warm socks and a full belly

 

The joy of loving and being loved

The camaraderie of laughter

A cloak of thankful praise to stop any gusts of loneliness and depression

 

Reconciliation with dear ones who are far away in body or spirit

Anticipation of reward for the hard work ahead

Expectation of better circumstances shifting in your direction

 

Awe in the wonder of the heavens, the earth, and all of creation

Divine guidance for your destiny’s next steps

Moments of solitude to consider the mysteries of spirit, soul, and butterfly wings

 

Courage to walk out the path before you

Health of body and mind to realize your best potential

Tenacity to keep you going during the heat of the day and the long midnight silence

 

Faith to believe when doubt creates mirages

Truth for combat when fear attempts a counterinsurgency in your life

Wisdom to understand the wealth of time and spend it wisely

 

Question: What will you be doing for the holidays?
