This is the letter I wrote inside the calendars, and I wanted to share it with you this wonderful Sunday before Christmas:
Thank you so much for having my wall calendar in your home. I am honored to share this next year with you!
I have decided to create and dedicate this calendar to all those who have experienced tragedy or loss of hope in life; for anyone who may feel loneliness or sadness.
I want you to know, these experiences can also be a blessing in disguise. This calendar is for you…to show you that life does go on. In fact, life is just as or perhaps even more beautiful than it was before your trial(s).
My life is filled with happiness and peace, and this calendar reminds me of that.
I have included some personal traditions and family events to share with you this upcoming year. I have made a conscious effort to make my life (despite my problems) just a beautiful as it was before.
Hopefully you will too. You deserve it. Remember, life is wonderful, but it is up to you to make it.
Merry Christmas to you and yours: Watch my favorite Christmas story here
(and if you listen, you will know why I love it so. The Mormon Tabernacle Choir = amazing...AMAZING)
