Reflections of Christmas 2020

Posted on December 14, 2020 at 5:05 PM

Thanksgiving has come and gone. Christmas is right around the corner. If you’ve lost a loved one, this time of year is not always easy. If I'm honest, I’ve shed quite a few tears in the last few weeks myself.


I’m missing my Mama and my husband and our traditions. Just their presence. I miss having a home to go to for the holidays and I miss their love. I remember growing up during the holidays my aunts, uncles, cousins, etc. would come from all over to my Grandma’s house to celebrate Thanksgiving and Christmas. We would have such an amazing time together. Those memories make me smile.


After I got married Thanksgiving, Christmas, birthdays and other holidays were celebrated big time. We would decorate, ride around to see Christmas lights, play Christmas trivia and everything else that you do around Christmas time. My late husband and I got so much joy watching our sons open their gifts, play and laugh! Since his passing it just hasn’t been the same.


I will tell you this, I am determined to have a great time during this Christmas Season. If you know me then you know that November through January is my favorite time of the year. Even in the midst of a pandemic that Christmas feeling is still here, coupled with some sadness. I’ve been watching Christmas movies and listening to Christmas music since October (LOL), with my sons in the background telling me Mama, it’s too early for that. LOL


Whatever you need to do to get through this season- do it. If that means doing nothing- it’s okay. If it means making new traditions- like my sons and I are doing, that’s perfectly fine as well.


I want to stress something though. Whatever you do keep love in the forefront. There is too much going on in the world for us to walk around shrouded in hate. Due to the pandemic there has been so much death, job loss that people don’t know how they are going to pay their bills, how they are going to feed their children or pay for childcare or even Christmas gifts. We’re unable to gather with family like we usually would do. People are walking around with broken hearts and empty bellies. Let’s not add to the issues that are already going on with hate, separation and ugliness. Let go of those grudges, call that family member you had a falling out with and let it go. Let’s love on each other.


Christmas in itself is a season of love- the ultimate love. God sent his Son Jesus to save us from our sins! Now that’s love!


Matthew 1:21- And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.


I pray that you have a Merry Christmas and remember that Jesus is the reason for the season!


In His Love,

You hit home on a lot areas for. This the first year I decided to decorate, since 2016, Christmas time. My husband passed away June 16, 2017. So I am trying to move forward, and this year COVID, thanksgiving was by myself. Christmas will probably be the same way.
