Last year at this time, I was very, very sad. 2010 had been a very tough year full of loss. I remember – vividly – walking the dogs and this song, “Christmas Lights” by Coldplay (video below) came on my iPod and I had to stop walking because I was crying so hard.
This year, it has a different meaning. Two days ago, our baby girl was born. She’s a few weeks early so is spending some time in the NICU but besides being a little small, she’s perfect (and the best Christmas gift EVER). Listening to this song today made me cry but for different reasons. Never give up hope. Never stop fighting. And may all your troubles soon be gone. Happy holidays and keep shining on.
