My Christmas wish was to not be here in my apartment alone but it is the gift I’ve been given so I am humbled and receive it. Their are many moments in peoples lives that are very much so like this. Moments that build our inner strength and force us to use our imagination in the self discovery of who we really are. Deep in the core of our beings we find our shadows and we fear them but, we also find our light. The light of who we are burns brighter the darker the shadows.
When a woman is told of her beauty, it is her nature to play down the compliment regardless of the positive feelings it may bring forth. Her thoughts about herself maybe a mixed bag but her reply of “Thank you” is her humble acceptance. When a man is told he is a good father, he’s doubts of whether or not he provides all that he is capable of to the fullness of his abilities are put to rest albeit only if for a moment, with his “Thank you” for the reply.
I believe that to be alone offers the greatest companionship of one. I find that in being alone I am not alone so I say my Thank you with all sencerity. There is no physical body to warm me but my heart is aflame next to my distant companion.
