Prepare for the holidays. Is this not what you do? You get out your boxes of decorations. You go shopping. You plan. Is there not great joy in tradition? Be sure to create new traditions as you go through well-worn motions. Traditions are well and good, but life is dynamic. People you love may have moved on to the next level of eternity, causing rifts in the traditional way of being and acting this holiday season. Create new ways of celebrating them, for they are most certainly still part of your celebrations, with you, watching, and wanting you to know they, like all that is, are as close as your breath.

You are so very loved.
