My words and my pictures. All I have


Merry Christmas!

Dear Goddess:

I was going to find a calm spot and talk to you for a while, but I guess I didn’t need to. I was going to ask you for a few Christmas presents, you know, like love, happiness, joy, and the strength to change the things that need to be changed in my life, among others. But then I got busy, and Christmas Eve came and went, and somehow I got the things I wanted without even having to ask for them.

I got love when a friend called to see how I was doing and wish me a merry Christmas. I got happiness when my six-month-old niece looked me in the eye with those baby blues that captured my soul and giggled. I got strength when I felt the company of those I love. I got joy when the lovely stray cat I adopted this year spent her first Christmas in the warmth and safety of her home.

I know I have a long way to go, but today I felt like I was finally going somewhere. So instead of asking, I give thanks, and I wish everyone a magical Christmas like mine. Love you all, my dear readers!
