For those over the miles and my son over the ocean - mom took an image as she prepares the table for Christmas Eve breakfast.
In my heart you will be among us.
I send you my love. May you be Happy, Healthy, Safe and at Peace....
As this year draws to its end,
We give thanks for the gifts it brought
And how they became inlaid within
Where neither time nor tide can touch them.
We bless the year for all we learned
For all we loved and lost
And for the quiet way it brought us
Nearer to our invisible destination
John O'Donohue - in part from "At The End Of the Year"
