A Photo A Day: My Daily Sustenance, Day 359

Ornaments with "boost"

We've waited four weeks and now it's Christmas Eve. What have I pondered during this time? With the help of blogging friends, I feel that I've delved deeper into knowledge of and attitudes toward the Virgin Mary.  I have tried to be more prayerful and less consumed with myself and the fact that I am a widow.  With my chronic depression, it is so easy to blame it for my moodiness and loss of energy.  So with the impending new year, I am pondering my goal for 2013. I am asking for assistance from Our Blessed Mother.  After all, she had the cumbersome task of raising our Lord.  She surely can help this hapless human.  Right?  Now all I need to do is sharpen my skill at hearing words that one doesn't hear through one's ears.  Maybe it is necessary to plead for that too.
Leaving you to enjoy the day, I am...
Quoting Clement Clarke Moore:
"Happy Christmas to all,
and to all a good night!"

Good morning, Norma. You have chosen the right path. The comfort of our Mother always keeps us, just naturally, close to Her Son. He is Love. His gift to us is unconditional Love. Our gift to Him is to be the very best we can be. Prayer. Listening for. Hearing. It all takes practice but with diligent attention your 2013 will open the door to happiness. Merry Christmas and may you have the happiest of days.
