Thinking of how difficult a time of year the holiday season is for those who have lost someone this year or in years past or when we think about family far away during the pandemic and remembered something that Alfred Lord Tennyson wrote.
“I am part of all that I have met.” -Alfred Lord Tennyson
Yes, I am a part of all that I have met, but they are also a part of ME. They live on and are with me in the lessons they taught, the smiles we shared, the love they have given, the cookies we have baked, the traditions we have shared, the laughter we have shared, and the bread we have broken together in times past. May happy memories surround you this season like a soft, warm blanket on a cold night.
May you find peace, love, and happiness this holiday season and always. My wish for you is that you can create new memories with those that you love this year, even though this holiday season is a bit different during the pandemic.
Life is good; carpe diem, friends………
