Since this blog post is falling on Christmas day I’m not going to feel too bad if most of my readers don’t see this right away. Christmas is a time for family, so put down your phones and other electronic devices and just enjoy spending time with your loved ones. With my mom passing during the holiday season three years ago it has become a bittersweet time for me. I miss her dearly, but I know that she expects me to keep moving forward without her. When I think of her I realize the importance of keeping in touch with loved ones. The time we are allotted on this earth is an unknown variable. So cherish those relationships in your life, they may not be there as long as you think they will be.
