“Do you want a new Christmas stocking?”, she asked. I hadn’t thought about it till that moment.
I haven’t had a new Christmas stocking since the divorce. The one I brought with me is laying in a box of unused Christmas items. These items that at one time, we enjoyed having, but they no longer resonate. That was my stocking.
Letting go of what you once were makes room for the new.
My new Christmas stocking is completely different than the other one. This is how my daughter sees me today. She knew before I did that it was time.
