I wrote this last night and posted it on my Christmas blog. Just a message of hope to carry you into 2021. 

I was watching that quintessential classic, It's A Wonderful Life tonight while I was decorating more cookies. (As many know, I like to keep my Yuletide celebrations going until Twelfth Night.) I usually watch this movie every year, but this year something was different. The message meant more to me. At the end, I was in tears. I've always been touched by this film, but this year, it really made me reflect.

We've all had a rough year...the entire world. Many have lost loved ones, friends. We've been separated from our families and our social groups. Our way of life is not the same. Will it ever be? These are the questions and these are the struggles we are all having.

As I look ahead to the new year with hope, I keep in my mind the message of It's a Wonderful Life. It IS a wonderful life. Every single one of us matter. Every one of us would be missed if we were gone. Every life we have ever touched would be changed forever if we never existed.

So, think on it. I know it's hard right now, but just being alive is wonderful. Our family and friends knowing we are out there somewhere, and finding comfort in it, is wonderful. Hope is wonderful, and so is love.

It really, truly is a wonderful life. 

Wishing you and yours a Happy New Year! Now for some whimsy...

Never miss a post!

Thank you for visiting and taking the time to comment. It means so much.

I apologize for word verification, but as soon as I changed the settings from only users with Google accounts, I started receiving a ton of spam comments...within one hour of changing the settings. The bots are on high alert apparently.

  1. Beautiful thoughts. It's so important to remember the good things in our lives. Beautiful movie and one of my favorites this time of year as well. Thank you for sharing. I hope you have a wonderful New Year's Eve and day. I haven't been able to concentrate much the last couple of weeks to get any good posts up, especially for end of year stuff. Hopefully this weekend. The champagne cat has been me all year! Love. May the new year be a whole lot better than this one has been.

  2. Lol - that last one's what I used to look like on NYE! This year we got together with friends in their garage - in our parkas, stocking caps, and gloves. What a year!
