Kindness makes all the difference.
Christmastime brings with it traditions, surprises, special gatherings and beautiful blessings… About 22 years ago, a group of ladies gathered to give an abused woman a gift shower to help her in settling into a new, safer life. Every year since then, I’ve received a Christmas card and update from this sweet lady.
Her life hasn’t been easy, but she shares with me how this year was for her, assuring me that she’s getting on in life amidst challenges and changes. She often shares remembering teaching my sons in music classes. Hearing this warms my heart, making me realize sometimes those ties that bind wrap many times around the heart, don’t they?
Every year I await hearing from her… it’s a Christmas tradition in my heart.
