I heard this song for the first time last night and it completely sums up feelings I try to hide during the Christmas season.
Like many of you, sometimes I find the magic of Christmas to be overwhelmingly sad, because those I love the most aren’t here to enjoy these times with me. Although I know in my heart they are here, and I add the special memories to my decorations and traditions to include them, often during the season the grief is paralyzing.
I miss my loved ones every day, but there is something about Christmas that makes it more difficult. While I am good at hiding it, I hold them close to my heart and in my alone times reflect on them even more.
The words of this song sum it all up, a perfect memory for those who celebrate with us in heaven. While not here physically, in our hearts forever.
