Taking Good Care of Each Other

Christmas for us is a night of sharing gifts, they're small tokens, but we make sure their meaning is clear, that there is no doubt, no one else could be receiving them, except for us. One of my closest friends, someone I've known over 15 years, left me quiet with gratitude, after I opened her tissue wrapped gift. Small, but there was no doubt in my mind, she had chosen it only for me. Her words of comfort, written in notecards, shared here with you today, because I am grateful for you:

So I asked my friends, "Where do I go from here?"
And they said,
Forward with hope.
And so I asked my friends, "When do the tears stop?"
And they said,
When you believe in tomorrow.
And then I asked my friends, "What now?"
And they said,
Hold on. 
Happy holidays to you all, and wishes for a peaceful new year.

I still have that in my closet.
