Please keep in mind that this time of the year may not be as merry or seemingly happy for some. There are people struggling whether financially or emotionally. Some may be saying good bye to a loved one, or not have a loved on or loved ones in their lives as they once did. May we have a little more patience with others, extend a little more grace, and demonstrate the gift of kindness and our presence with our presents this Christmas.
To all of my three children, I love you unconditionally, and will always be one call, email or text away no matter where you are, or if you are in my life or not. A good father always loves, and welcomes their children with open arms no matter the passing of time, the distance, or circumstances.
To my parents, know that although these years of your life may be challenging, know that I love you, admire you, and wish to thank your for raising me, even at the times we did not see eye to eye, or it may have been very difficult with my tendency to be bull headed, especially in my more youthful years.
To my circle of friends, thank you for being in my life both extending encouragement, inspiration, as well as accountability.
To the woman I have shared the last 22 months with, thank you for being you, for being a woman after God’s own heart, an excellent mother to three fine young men, an excellent example to my own son, and a woman whom makes my cup runneth over. I adore, love and appreciate you.
Time is priceless, and precious. Invest it wisely and may we all give the gift of our engaging presence with our presents this Christmas.
“Just fight a little longer my friend, it’s all worth it in the end. But when you got nobody to turn to, just hold on and I’ll find you…”
