Whether you are five years old or have five grand children, either way, this is your Christmas.

Whether you are surrounded by the ones you love on this day or you have hollowed a hole in your heart for someone who is missing, either way, this is your Christmas.

Whether you have just tied the knot or you are slowly untying what seems like a lifetime’s worth of knots, either way, this is your Christmas.

Whether you have a healthy bank account or you are fighting to make ends meet, either way, this is your Christmas.

Whether you are filled to the brim with happiness and elation as you awaken each day or you are softly crying yourself to sleep each night, wondering how to put yourself back together again, either way, this is your Christmas.

Whether you are finding yourself smiling over someone unexpected this December or you are learning to let go of someone who once defined your grins, either way, this is your Christmas.

Whether you are filling the tree and stockings with dozens of gifts or you are giving the gifts that only a tight budget can buy this year, either way, this is your Christmas.

Whether you are settled by the fire, enjoying the sights and sounds of a place called “home,” or you are away from your loved ones and missing familiarity this season, either way, this is your Christmas.

Whether a jolly big man in a bright red suit left you treasures to wake up to or a little baby in a manger changed your life with his birth, either way, this is your Christmas.

No matter whom we are, where we come from, the amount we can give and receive this season or what we believe in, either way, this is Christmas.  

 

Merry Christmas to you and yours.

Best,

Hannah Katy
