I'm sharing this with my Facebook friends. I, too, have lost parents, both. One quite young and the other while vital but after a more complete life. I miss them terribly and feel the pain of the loss and the pain that continues in living, along with the joy. This was a beautiful, honest, and concise piece getting at those issues in connection with the Christmas story. Thank you. I need that as I continue to seek hope in my God and don't always feel like I find it.
