This is a different kind of blog on this beautiful Christmas Eve, I’m doing something I’ve never done before- spending Christmas Eve alone. The kids are spending the holiday with the other side of the family, my husband is flying, and the other family that was coming canceled at the last moment for health reasons. And you know what? It’s still a beautiful evening.
I’ve had invitations to join friends, but I’m choosing to stay in, hang with Koda, and be reflective of the beauty on the season. Tonight is such a magical night filled with possibility. Not only is it Christmas Eve, but it’s also Hanukkah at the same time. That only happens every 4-5 years, so that makes tonight very special indeed.
I’m listening to Christmas carols recorded by my daughter Carly and feeling very sentimental, for my life is so full of blessing. Not only do I have the two greatest kids, but they’ve each found the perfect partners, giving me four amazing gifts in my life.
My husband Darryl is the best Christmas present ever! He proposed to me last year at this time, we married in April, and I’ve never been happier. He’s my perfect partner in crime. Who else would fly around the world with me on our Global Hug Tour? That takes a very special guy indeed to not think I’m crazy!
I’m also blessed with one of the largest extended families ever. From my birth family to my global InspireMeToday family, I am profoundly grateful for you in my life- tonight and always. You rock my world. You embrace my dreams and make them your own. You make me smile and fill the world with joy. I am so grateful for each of you!
So on this beautiful Christmas Eve, I’d like to share the gift of the season with you- love.
May you be surrounded by those you love and make the time to build memories that will last a lifetime. May your heart overflow with joy and laughter. Go hug someone near you and tell them how much they mean to you. Then do it again with someone else. Share the love tonight and capture the energy of this incredible night.
Remember the Divine being that you are and the possibility that lives within.
With love and the warmest wishes for a very Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanzaa and blessings for whatever you are celebrating tonight. I wish you love and everything you’ve ever dreamed of, tonight and always.
My Christmas present to you is here. Turn down the lights, light a candle, turn up your speakers, close your eyes and just listen. Soak it in. I hope it touches your heart as you have touched mine.
Love and hugs,
