It Is Not About Me

After you have lost a loved one, Christmas can sometimes be tough because you expect or wish that things could be the same as they were before you lost your loved one.  I am adult enough to know that it can’t be like it was, and that I have to adjust to a new normal.  I am so grateful to my family for making the new normal as happy for me as they can.  However, sometimes you can’t help but be a little blue.  I have experienced that feeling this Christmas and then it just hit me, this is not about me.  It is not about the presents, the tree and all the good food.  This is about the most glorious gift that human kind has ever been given.  This is the celebration of the birth of Jesus.  As my family and I celebrate on Christmas, may that thought always be in my mind, that He is the reason for the season.
