Is This a Christmas of Lasts?
This Christmas season I have pondered that this may be a Christmas of lasts. My oldest daughter is in 4th grade. My parents are in their upper 80's. I question, is this the last year my oldest will believe in Santa? Is this the last year my family will unite with both my parents in my childhood home? The odds, in both cases, are not in my favor. But realistically, it could be the Christmas of lasts for anyone. We don't know when a loved one will be taken from us or a child will stop believing in the magic of Christmas. One thing we do know is what we have here, today, and that is why living in the moment is ever so important. Make sure to hug and appreciate your loved ones today, for who knows what tomorrow brings.
