As a believer of Christ, I spend every Christmas Eve at church surrounded by some of my closest friends learning about our Lord and how He sent His son to die for us. Year after year we “celebrate” His birth and then I return home to celebrate with my family and closer family friends. We then proceed to spend the night watching movies, playing games, or updating each other on our lives. This used to be one of my most favourite “holidays” of the year. I love seeing all my friends and families and seeing everyone smile while talking about the wonderful, amazing, atrocious, crazy, whirlwind of a year that just passed.
But all this gets a little bit tougher when I see couples walking side by side on the streets. I see them cuddling on the park benches while admiring the glistening snow or taking pictures together to commemorate the moments they spend with each other appreciating the bright light displays around the city.
I wish you can be here with me. I wish that you will keep me warm and we can admire the bright lights together with our fingers interlocked. I wish we can go for walks together again in the cool nights of our city. I wish I can hear your voice, your laughter, and see your face, your smile.
Regardless of how much time passes, I continue to pray for your success in your career. I pray for you to take care of yourself and stay healthy during busy seasons of work. I pray that you will take a break from work and spend time with the family you work so hard for.
I pray that you will take a moment just to think of me.
