In the festive season I find myself looking back. As though something lurks.
Have I forgotten to do something?
Have I remembered to give something?
Do I remember the last time we did this or we did that?
My mind is a blur of lists, loves, longings and learning curves....
Recent events ... sad events ... events that tear up hearts and break open souls... they are what some families will look back upon now.
They are the memories that scar this special time for those who have just lost a loved one.
Truth is we face this every day. Some will pass away on the day itself.
Always there are those left behind who look back...
This post is for you. I hope that as you do look back you see past the darkness and remember the times when the lights shone brightly and the sparkle of Christmas made your heart sing.
Love and light to you all.
