I can hardly believe today is Christmas Eve! It seems like just yesterday I was making a million beads to head out to BeadFest. I remember quite vividly a phone conversation in August with my good friend Cindy where I said "before we know it, it will be January". I am so happy I decided to slow things down recently. January isn't here quite yet and although things are still moving fast, it isn't an overwhelming pace. All my Momma-made goodies are under the tree, and I was even able to work up a few extra things for some last minute guests that will be sharing dinner with us. Our evenings have passed playing family games together and watching Christmas movies. It has really just plain ROCKED! Christmas spirit is everywhere!
The other day, while I was helping with wrapping Santa's load of goodies, my mind just kept thinking the word blessed over and over. We are so blessed to have our health, while some of our close family members have been given difficult diagnoses recently. We are blessed to have each other close. We are blessed to be able to provide such a wonderful Christmas for our children each year. My own blessings are too numerous to mention. But I will say, one of those blessings is pretty freaking exciting, and I can't wait to share it with you in the new year.
Gosh, thinking about what an amazing year this has been, I can't imagine what more I could ask for. Nothing really. Except this...
I wish each and everyone of you a wonderful holiday and incredible new year.
