Posts Tagged ‘First Day of Christmas’

Oh, I’ve been singing this song in my head (you wouldn’t want me to sing out loud!) for days trying to get ready for this project of mine I have convinced myself to take on. So here goes………

On the First Day of Christmas, my true love gave to me…………a wonderful family! My two children, Darren and Arianne, have brought so much love and joy into my world, I can’t really describe it. I’m sure all of you parents out there reading this can relate to what I’m saying.

While I try to follow my own advice all through the year, during the Christmas season I try especially hard to not lose sight of the importance of family in my life. While my husband and I have both lost our parents, and extended family is not really part of our lives, my husband, children, siblings and their kids are my focus. It is my family that got me through the most difficult days when Darren was first spinal cord injured (my Mom was alive then and provided a very strong support system) and continues to this day. It is my family that keeps me going  day after day, month after month and year after year.

I hope you have family with which to celebrate this holiday season, and if blood relatives are not part of your life, I hope you have found friends and communities who can stand in their place and give you the support you need to life live as fully as possible every single day of this holiday season.

Celebrate FAMILY! Until tomorrow…………Cynthia
