Good morning to all those that crave sustenance from social media platforms. I greet you with a Merry Christmas and a heartfelt Happy Holidays. As you sort through your holiday morning’s, well wishes; juggling all the texts and phone calls, cleaning up gift-wrappings and nurturing the delicacies still under the fire. Maybe you’ve noticed my abstinence from this digital platform, maybe you haven’t. Nevertheless, here I am, confirming my continued existence and well being.
This year has been wild, weird, unusual, and yet unforgettable. We’ll all remember it in some way. We’ll recall the abrupt change of our time. Today just doesn’t feel right; the spirit of the holidays is missing; at least in my opinion. I hope and pray that you are not living your lives in total fear. I hope that you are taking this opportunity to invest in yourselves. I hope you are building your own personal empires and living well.
Again, I am still here…obviously. Closed in, shut off, but gainfully occupied. I don’t forget you, I haven’t stopped caring, I haven’t hid in a corner. I was walking in times past, but now I’m running. I’m staying focused on my vision and I see it vividly.
I just wanted to wish you a peaceful Christmas, a joyful day, a safe living. I wanted to encourage you to press on and not to be manipulated by the pressures of this world. I wanted to encourage you, as I do myself daily.
I truly hope you receive all the desires of your heart – I really do; but…know that there is an undeniable advantage to the very mind content within its current experience; a subtle peace if you will.
The thought of you all makes me smile. I give my smile to you as the only true gift I can give you worth more than anything my money could buy. We have conversed, cried & laughed, worked together and learned from one another. It has been my pleasure to have had the opportunity to be a piece of your lives.
All I want for Christmas is your memory; your memories of our interactions, adventures, talks, laughs & shenanigans. I’m talking to you beloved, my personal Saint-No-Clause. Remember and know that by remembering you’ve gifted me something immensely priceless and cheerfully accepted. Believe that you are loved, adored, respected, valued and also remembered always. Be well and shine your lights brightly.
· You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hid;
· Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it gives light to all that are in the house.
· Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works
