Just One Wish....

The Christmas season. Festive decorations, sparkling lights, treats galore, beloved traditions, and family togetherness.

Christmas carols tell us this is the “happiest season” and “the most wonderful time of the year. This is definitely true for a great many people. However, for some, the holidays are the hardest, most painful time of the year. This is especially true for those who have lost someone near and dear to them.

An empty chair at the dinner table. One less stocking to hang by the fireplace. Traditions that will never – can never – be the same.

If I could have just one special wish for Christmas, it would have nothing to do with fancy jewelry or the latest gadget. No money spent, no fancy trimmings or bows.

If I could have just one wish this holiday season, I would wish for a few precious moments in which our worlds – the world of the living and the world of the afterlife – could come together. One more chance for a grieving parent to see, touch, and hold the child they miss so desperately. A few moments to reunite, reconnect, and heal. There could be no greater gift than showing those left behind that their loved ones are still with them, at peace and happy.

With all of my heart, I wish you a wonderful holiday season. May all of your loved ones be near, in life or in spirit.
