Merry Christmas, sweet family and friends. No photo to share this year of our tree or holiday decorations. It has been a very difficult fall for my family. I have been MIA here on my blog for weeks. Not sure there will be anyone left to read this message or to join me here in 2019.
I have been in Kentucky for over two weeks caring for my mom but she is finally on her way back. Had her best day in months yesterday. This morning PC and I are in Albuquerque, New Mexico with Lauren, Lucia and Francisco. Lauren miscarried our baby Emmy (Emilia) Jean two weeks ago so it has been a very difficult season for their family. She had chosen to name baby girl after my mama Nira Jean. And we have not yet shared with my mom that Lauren lost the baby. Not sure there will ever be the ‘right’ time to tell her.
As I sat in the Houston airport on my way home to El Paso on Sunday, my sister shared the song below in a text, saying we both needed a silent night. Or a Silent Night. Hope you will take a few short minutes to listen to the words of this song by Amy Grant. And then remember that first silent night so long ago and the peace it promised to all of us. There will be trials and tribulations in life. But in the end there will be peace.
As we look ahead to the coming new year, I am hopeful for better and brighter days. Thank you for being a part of my journey in 2018. Merry Christmas!
Hugs and kisses,
