I leave you with a holiday song that is special to our family. My family lost a dear loved one many years ago, before I was born. As my grandfather drove his wife and two young sons home from the hospital, this song played on the radio. My father was just a boy when his sister passed away, but he always sang this song while I was growing up, and he would cry even though the years had added up to decades, then to a century. It was as though his sister was telling them that she was going home for Christmas and would be with her maker, safe and without pain. I didn’t even know her, but I feel the loss and hope in this song. May you be home for the holidays, safe with your families. And if you are not home or are alone for the holidays, know that our writing community is with you in spirit.  Love, hugs, and best wishes to all!
