Happy New Year to all of you! :D
I've got lots of holiday postings to make & I will get them out ASAP.
I hope that all of you have had a wonderful holiday season with all those you love!
Our holiday season has been wonderful! I am SO GRATEFUL for all of the wonderful people in my life.
I've found that as you get older holidays become somewhat less exciting. As an adult you no longer have the eagerness of waiting for Santa and almost all of us look at the holiday preparations laid before us and think "how will we ever get this done!?!" when suddenly we realize that all of the Christmas hoop-la doesn't happen without lots of buying, wrapping and work. It can easily be overwhelming..
The spirit of Christmas tho, and all other holidays is remembering the little things. It's important to take note of the small gestures not just grandiose gifts and spectacular decorations.Those things are nice... (personally, I love them!) but they are never the most important thing.
Our families and friends and the time to cherish them, hope, the childlike wonder, the belief in even a small bit of magic, generosity, joy and most of all love are what really makes a holiday special.
Here's some little pieces of our holiday!! :)
As you start your new year remember what is most important in your life... in fact, take note of WHAT THAT IS and if you need to, change it! :) Life is too short to wait... this may be the only time you have. Keep that in mind and let it be a blessing to you, your life and those you love! :)
