This Christmas has a special magic, a blessing, wrapped around it, after such a challenging year. I feel grateful for Gary and the kids being together, and for the beautiful week we’ve been having together. They deserve this time together.
I feel like this blog has changed so much, since I have changed so much. I don’t post as frequently as I used to, but sometimes life demands more attention and won’t settle for “Can you wait until I finish this post?” I am still opinionated and mouthy, but I have had to fight so hard for my family this year, I am simply enjoying watching them together, sharing time with them, feeling them close to me.
I have updated my private blog, and I finally caught up on adding new readers who have requested access. If you do not already have access to my private blog, leave a comment or send me an e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
I am leaving work early today and heading home to appreciate each laugh, each “I love you”, each smile and spontaneous hug.
I hope everyone takes a moment from the spending, decorating, partying, wrapping, unwrapping, and eating to step back and feel what matters most in your heart.
