Merry [belated] Christmas!
I honestly can’t believe that the holiday season is coming to a close already. I’m not going to lie, getting in the Christmas spirit was nearly impossible for me (and my family) this year which made for an interesting celebration. But we mustered up some energy, put on our happy faces, and tried to make the most of the situation. And you know what? It may have been my favorite Christmas ever.
It was different, really different. We didn’t go crazy with presents because that just wasn’t practical this year. Instead, we ate, we laughed, and we truly treasured every gift that we gave/received.
This year has been like a massive hurricane. It came without warning, whipped us around, made unpredictable changes, and caused serious devastation. But the love that we’ve found as a result is something to be thankful for and the strength that I’ve seen in my family is unbelievable.
Here’s to the precious gift of love…
