Holiday Wishes 5

From Brentwood Lifestyle Staff

Do generous things for others with great intentions, compassion and love!


Ali Miller                                             

My wish is to continue to have the opportunity to meet and interact with the incredible people of the Brentwood community. I moved to Nashville last year and am continually amazed with the warmth and generosity the people have given me. 


Ann Walczak                      

My wish for all this holiday season would be to have the access to and blessing of a comforting meal. If you are fortunate, please try and get involved with organizations that benefit those that are not, so everyone might be able to feel the warmth and love of good food.


Ashley Hylbert                                  

Wishing that we all take comfort in the small but powerful things that touch us this holiday season, and carry that love, joy, light and motivation into a prosperous 2020!

Christmases growing up were blanketed in snow that masked and quieted our small city, where you could stand outside bundled from head to toe in down and furs and hear nothing but the crackling of ice on ice, see frost glistening under the waves of the Northern Lights, waiting for elk to exit the forest and glean what was left in our gardens. I’m thankful for these memories and dream of stepping into glorious nights like these again.


Danielle Del Valle                                            

Happy holidays! Wishing you and your loved ones a great season, and may the new year bring new goals to crush and endless happiness.


James Williams                 

I wish that all family members gather to enjoy the quality time of the holidays. Always remember, nothing is like a good memory picture that will live forever. Happy holidays, everyone, and God bless.

Sending more kindness into the world, day by day, moment by moment, is my hope and wish. Mother Teresa encouraged us to remember that peace begins with a smile. So, please join me in deliberately seeking more aspects about which to smile as we greet the interesting year, 2020 (MMXX)! Afterall, it is a leap year, Year of the Rat in the Chinese zodiac/calendar, the 20th year of the 21st century and the first year of the 2020s decade.

Happy New Year! Say goodbye to 2019’s worry, doubt, fear, negativity and difficulty and hello to 2020 being filled with laughter, love, faith, courage and peace.

Christmas in our house is always hectic; lots of family and friends gathered around the Christmas tree exchanging presents, eating cookies and drinking hot cider. It’s happy chaos. My wish is to be able to continue to celebrate with those I love for many more years to come. Merry Christmas!
