Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

Ce­line Dion has re­flected on her roller­coaster year in a ret­ro­spec­tive video. The 'My Heart Will Go On' hit­maker - who trag­i­cally lost her hus­band RenÈ AngÈlil in Jan­uary af­ter a bat­tle with throat can­cer - posted a four minute video doc­u­ment­ing her year, which has seen her achieve a num­ber of ca­reer high­lights in­clud­ing win­ning the Bill­board Icon Award and cel­e­brat­ing her 1000th Las Ve­gas show. In a mes­sage to fans at the end of the video, she said: "My voice does not res­onate with­out you. You have made my child­hood dream come true. I hope I have in­spired you to reach out for yours." The 48-year-old singer - who has RenÈ-Charles, 15, and six-yearold twins Nel­son and Eddy, with her late hus­band - will spend this Christ­mas ski­ing as it was a fam­ily tra­di­tion to head to the slopes of Montana ev­ery hol­i­day. She shared: "He put some some­thing magic into that snow, into those moun­tains, and ev­ery time we go down, I go down with him. My chil­dren go down think­ing about him. Ev­ery time I take the lift to go up, I feel closer to him. "For me the trip is not to party. It's to try and me­di­ate, find bal­ance and be at peace with my­self and my chil­dren and to eat, to play games, whether it's Mo­nop­oly or the tele­phone game." And Ce­line wishes time could slow down as she is "not ready" for the an­niver­sary of RenÈ's pass­ing. She ex­plained: "I can't be­lieve it's go­ing to be a year that my hus­band passed. I don't know when Santa Claus is com­ing, but if I had a wish to make this year, can you just tell him to take his time? I'm not ready! "It's kind of a bit­ter­sweet mo­ment and at the same time we need to re­ally make the hol­i­days re­ally happy. I feel thank­ful that he doesn't suf­fer and he doesn't have to worry be­cause we got him. He got us and the spirit of the hol­i­days will get us to­gether again ... We're go­ing to ski again all to­gether and he will be there with us."
