I am sitting in a hotel in Corpus Christi (since this past Sunday) and won't be home until Christmas Eve. I'm reflecting on what I am feeling and would like to know what every one else is feeling with the holidays upon us.

Me, I realize how much I miss Darcie and the kids, wishing that I was home to smell the Christmas tree and candles around my house. I wish I was there to hear them tell me one more thing they want that they forgot to tell Santa when they sat on his lap last weekend. I wish I was there to help Darcie eat cookies that I am not supposed to touch unil Christmas morning. I wish some of my family members weren't suffering from sadness and hard times right now. I wish I could gift to them a piece of mind. I wish I heard only the Christmas songs that I like and that all of the rest of them were not played in hotel lobbies.

Holidays are the moments when we decide to come together as a family- break our normal routines to allow time for a little extra happiness. Myles, my seven year old asked me this year if Santa was real. I asked him if he had a special feeling inside of him when he looked at the Christmas tree and heard Cristmas songs. I asked him if he had a special feeling when he thought about giving and getting gifts and going to Church to celebrate Jesus being born. He said yes of course, to which I replied, "Then of course Santa is real. He makes you feel that way."

Please take a moment to share your Christmas wish list, whatever it might be.

Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, Happy Hannukah to all my friends, both old and new. Make the best of your holidays by stopping to appreciate the people in your lives.

Peace~! Brian

You summed it up nicely Brian. Very sweet conversation you had with your son.

I concur that being with family is ideal...unfortunately it ain't happening that way for me...divorce sucks and the Dad usually gets the short end of that stick....but hey, I know my boys love me and they know I love them.

The commercial crap I honestly can leave...it's family, seeing a youngster with that twinkle in their eye or just getting together with friends and sharing some good times.

A time to focus on what you have already, not what things could be.

I wish my nephew was not so selfish and stubborn. He has custody of his
daughter and won't let her see any family who is still friendly with the ex-wife.
His ex-wife will be in Orlando this weekend with her husband and the other two
daughters. But, my nephew refused to let his daughter, my grandneice, come
with them. We are on his black list. His mother would not be proud
of his behavior if she was still
with us.Ultimately his daughter will suffer from lack of family who love her. It was a
bitter divorce. Very sad situation. But we will all still
have a good time this weekend.

I miss my youngest sister who passed away in 2008. She was a Christmas person!
She carefully looked for special gifts for everyone the whole year. We have good
memories of opening those surprise gifts, a gag gift and a real gift.

I do wish all good things for the people here. And peace on earth.

My only prayer
Is if I can't be there
Lord, protect my child ( Sean, Evan & GrandDaughter Eden )

It is Very Hard on the heart and soul being away from them, especially during the Holiday Season. I and they still know the LOVE is there, Always Will Be ! ! !


Now for myself . . .



Ahhhhhhh . . . now that's Peace
