I really enjoyed reading EVERY single comment, as did Lindsay. Of the five who were randomly chosen, Carole (#73) had such touching words that moved me to tears. Carole shared in her comment:
“My favorite Christmas carol is Silent Night. I used to sing this to my little granddaughter when she went to bed. She always wanted to be sung to and her mom, my daughter, knew a million songs, I had to rely on Christmas carols. Marissa left us when she was 2 yrs. old. 10 years ago. It’s taken me that long to listen to Silent Night without crying.” - Carole
Carole, thank you for sharing a part of your heart and reminding us the importance of expressing love every moment that we have together. In sweet Marissa’s honor, I have a special something coming your way along with our gift.
We each have such a unique story to share. Each and every life so rich in memories, traditions, and togetherness. Thank you to Southern Living for being a part of ALL of our stories. I like to think of each of us as a light…and that we shine a little brighter when we share a glimpse of our heart.
Love to all.
