I think that writing is therapy for everyone who writes. That said, you are a fantastic writer. You have poured all your feeling into what you put on the page. It connects with people and they appreciate it. I hope that you know that I appreciate not only you connecting with me early on, but everything that you do here in Fan Story. I have only recently just started to hit the reading portion hard. I have only recently started the voting process regularly. I will be a champion to you and your situation in all ways. You have a friend in me. I believe in God very strongly. Although sometimes my posts may be a little rebellious and racy - I have my demons. I just want you to know that everything you have done and said is a class act! Thank you for this beautiful post and it is worth the win. Good luck in the contest. Blessings & Cheers, Fonda

I don't usually do reviews. But I had to on this one. Thank you for sharing this wonderful work. This was a wake up call for me to again realize that the petty problems I have are nothing compared to what others are facing. Remain strong in your journey. My prayers are with you. It sounds like you know what it is to love and be loved. That is our greatest gift. May God be with you.

The magic of Christmas is in the story, your writing, and invincible love. Emotional and well written, the story moves the reader. I wish happiness and good cheer to you and your husband this Christmas.

The holidays can certainly be hard. I wish I had the right words to say. I wish I could cure your husbands cancer. All I can say, I feel like everyone is going to say this, but just enjoy this year. Try to make it a little more special. Enjoy every minute and try not to think about what is happening. I know easier said than done. I wish I could reach through and give you a huge squeeze. Hang in there friend.

Hi,

Your Christmas essay is well organized and you managed to relay the information without getting too emotional. Christmas has changed over the years - the way we celebrate, the way the politics have come into it AND then there's the sheer commercialism.

Thank you for sharing and good luck to you in the contest,

~Mustang Patty~

This is so beautiful, sad, stimulating, and oozing with great emotion. One never knows who they are and what they're made of until faced with great adversity. Look up daughter to the one invisible who sees and knows all and who is moved by the feeling of your infirmities. He will strengthen you and help you in your time of weakness. Enjoy and cherish your love while he's on this side of eternity. Bless you and I'll be sending up prayers for you and yours. Thanks for sharing this personal story with us.

A wonderful, insightful read, so refreshing to read your heartfelt words..........
Everything seems to be so watered down these days, I still believe in the traditional values at this time of year.
Best wishes

It seems" The Magic Of Christmas" - look at your spacing here.

I feel very stupid feeling sorry for myself - I get this, but there's no need to feel stupid about it. As we get older, so many things change around us and what made it wonderful may not be there anymore or it's a different dynamic.

This site is such a fantastic outlet for those who need just that.

This is very well put together and the sense of what you feel comes across very strongly sand very well indeed.

Prayers and thoughts sent to you and your husband. You make some very important points here, Christmas is not always a happy time for some people and we often remember those you have passed on. Your essay is true to life and many can relate to your words.
