Christmas 2015

It is the time of the year of family gatherings, meeting up with friends and over eating. A time of unity and peace. This Christmas brings me a special joy  that I can only say Kelly-Anne had implicated herself in from afar. I started to work again in an exciting company surrounded by good people. A company where I am able to continue making a difference in other people's lives. I have been truly blessed that this new opportunity literally fell into my lap.

The signs were present from afar that this new position was meant for me. It was as if  Kelly-Anne led me to this company in such an indirect way. Even the first week there, she confirmed to me in her own way that I belonged there. I could just imagine her chuckling to herself with that infectious smile on her face when she realized that I caught on to her messages....all through other people.

Life is strange and after life is even stranger. I consider myself very blessed to have this special connection to  my daughter. It is one that I have never had with any other family member who has passed. Maybe it is because it is so different to loose a child. It is not  how the circle of life is suppose to be.

I am blessed to have Jules, Kim, Joe and Paige. The excitement is mounting as we will be with Paige for Christmas. The baking and Christmas crafts continue this weekend with Paige. I see Christmas through her eyes. Paige is not a fan of Santa and  made it quite clear today as she told her mother "no seeing Santa". I am sure she will be delighted when she sees her presents under  her Christmas tree. Maybe then she will realize that Santa is not such a bad guy after all.

I hope for those of you who have taken the time to read my posts that this Christmas you too can see Christmas through the eyes of a child. Merry Christmas.
