My Christmas Wish

Christmas 2016 is different. 

Something in the air has me colder than I have ever been, my desire to bake confectionery bliss never arrived and the angst of the world has me off balance.  It is that something in the air that has me pensive beyond the typical, end-of-the-year vibe.

Just as there is a mother bubbling with excitement over her child's First Christmas, there is also a child facing a devastating first Christmas without their mother. There is someone waking up to an empty refrigerator, while the masses post food porn updates on their social media timelines.  Such is the Yin Yang of life.

My philosophy has always been to look for the light, even in the darkest moments.  And it has become quite challenging lately, with a President-elect showing us how he will be running the country in 140 characters or less. I pray for the safety of those who will walk into the doors of churches today amidst terrorist threats, and for the countless military men and women missing home-cooked meals.

And yet, there are so many things I am grateful for: excellent health, sound mind and dreams to fulfill. My Christmas wish to you is that you receive these priceless gifts as well.
