(ornament by my amazingly talented, inspiring, and loving friend Casey. it's my favorite one of the season)
On this night, I'm wishing you joy and peace, especially if your heart needs a little (or a lot) of tender care.
Tonight, my heart is full of both sadness and joy. I am remembering my stepbrother, who passed alway suddenly just over four years ago. Yet, I am also celebrating meeting my love for the very first time - eight years ago on this very night.
Oh, how life stretches our hearts far and wide.
