I LOVE Christmas time! Every year when it comes around, I am soooooo excited for the snow to fall, the baking to be done, the family to see, and the gifts to give. It's such a wonderful time of year...and I love to soak up every minute of it. This year is no exception, and the Christmas season is of to a fantastic start. Today was such a wonderful day I think I could burst with happiness. I got to do some fun crafting for the Black and Blue Ball with the ORG Hospitality Committee...I got to eat my favorite lunch of grilled cheese and tomato soup...I got to bake Christmas cookies with my dear friend Micki...it snowed like 5 inches (the first real snow of the season)...I got my AMAZING shoes for the Black and Blue Ball in the mail...and I got to spend time with my incredible husband. Life couldn't be better than it is right at this moment.
Of all the things I am thankful for in my life, I think the thing that I am most thankful for is this contentment and peace I have. I am so happy with where I'm at. Some days I am not always happy with everything...I wish I didn't have the stress of bills and budgeting... I wish I got more sleep...I wish I didn't have to go through sorrow and loss. My life isn't perfect, there's no question about that. But even in the moments of imperfection, I am OK with whatever happens. I am so grateful that I have been blessed with more than I need...that I have people in my life to take care of me when I can't...that I have at least one thing that brings a smile to my face each and every day. I don't deserve all of this, but I am so incredibly thankful I am blessed with all that is in my life.
Merry Christmas to you all! I hope you enjoy these next three weeks in anticipation of Christmas day as much as I do...it's going to be WONDERFUL!
