Sending You a Little Christmas (If I Could) – Music Video, Commentary on Grief & Loss

I was shopping in the store when this song came on… “Sending You a Little Christmas” by Jim Brickman and Kristy Starling. 

I was wandering the aisles thinking about my children, remembering the holidays we used to share.. this song seemed to speak directly to what it feels like to be a parent separated from your children at the holidays. 

Empty-eyes teddy bears, dolls in pretty party dresses with no where to go…and a mother who no longer belonged among the happy, intact families. 

“Sending You A Little Christmas” spoke to my grief with lyrics that understood all I felt, all the prayers poured from my heart, all the tears that gushed forth like the waters that brought my children into the world…and I stood in the middle of the toy aisle and cried. 

~ Emily Court

A photograph, a blanket
Some mistletoe, confetti snow
An angel to put on a tree
Santa Claus in crayon
To make you smile today
While you’re so far away

So I’m sending you a little Christmas
Wrapped up with love
A little peace, a little light
To remind you of
How I’m waiting for you, praying for you
I wanted you to see
So I’m sending you a little Christmas
Till you come home to me

Some gingerbread, a candy cane
A stocking I made with your name
I filled it with your favorite things
A way to say I love you
Like kisses through the air
Hoping you’ll feel me there


Home – into these arms of mine
Home where you belong

About Emily Court

It takes "Just Us" To Fight Injustice in Family Court. I blog to raise awareness about problems existing in the family court system, and use my own story as a personal example of how the systemic failures in family court, and the Guardian ad Litem Program, affect families, in an effort to encourage needed reform. Written by a survivor of domestic violence and homelessness working to create a better life for her children, in a stable home free of violence. In her efforts to rebuild her life, she has not only encountered harassment and intimidation from her alleged abuser but faced systematic failures in family court that have empowered her alleged abuser and put her children at risk. She has spent over a decade trapped in family court until her children finally aged out of the system. Through writing and blogging, FCI is working to raise awareness about domestic violence, and the urgent need for family court reform. She is currently working on a memoir titled "'Til Prayers Are Answered".
