Entry #3

The portal took me to a more recent time: 2012. That is to be expected, though—the angels and guides said any time in the past is a possible destination.

I was in the room with a little boy and his mom. His mom sat at her laptop, uploading a doll photo to her Facebook social media. She typed “80’s Peaches and Cream Barbie” as modern Christmas music played from her cellular phone.

She said to her son, “These always do well during the holidays. It’s the perfect time to remember.”

She had a wistfulness in her voice…a sadness. Yet somehow, there was a soft joy of something forgotten and remembered once again.

She looked at the little boy and knew he’d eventually learn that holidays are happy, but they change throughout the years. And remembering can be important.
