One Christmastime many years ago

a child was born

a present

the beginning of a family


the beginning of many years of laughter

of song

nights of celebration and togetherness


Christine is gone now

but she is with us always

in spirit


This Christmas will be bedecked with colored lights

with tears and memories

with gratitude

as we gather together

with courage

to embrace new beginnings
