Note by Note: Christmas Card Blues | No. 4 | 12.11.18

One of my favorite Christmas cards ever arrived in our mailbox several years ago. The front photo had your typical darling, smiling, outfit-coordinated children, but the backside was hilarious. The photographer captured the action a few minutes before or afterwards (or both)…one child had just pulled the hair of his crying sister who is leaning into the other annoyed, frowning sister. 

A pure gift. The true story. We kept this card in our dining room for an entire year. 

We all like to put our best feet forward by displaying our bright and shiny on social media, in conversation, in advertising, in our holiday cards. 

My history of falling prey to perfectionism is long and storied. And let’s face it—if you are feeling less than perfect, the holidays can be rough.

Will You Stand with Me starts with the truth that “Anyone can take the wheel when the see is calm and the coast is clear.” But who do we become when the “sea gets rough and the chips are down and the gig is up”? This is a song of gratitude for those who stand with us and a song of challenge that we might stay strong as we accompany each other in difficult days.
