Christmas is about family, generosity, and celebrating the birth of the divine, being channeled through a human form. We are so loved that God gives us the opportunity to connect the mysteries in ourselves by following the teachings of Christ and those like Him.
For so many this holiday with family can be a challenge. We have memories tied up with unmet expectations, trauma, and old tapes that seem to repeat over and over. I have hope for myself that I can find the absolute joy of this season and practice self-love and forgiveness for my family patterns and dynamics that would keep me sad and disappointed.
