This year was extra special since many changes have taken place in my family. We have a brand new addition to the family. My niece had a baby boy named Amery. I will post pictures here of this perfect ball of joy. Also, my older sister is in recovery and it really did make Christmas Eve at my house, free of drama.
I know how lucky I am having people in the world that love me. I have seen so many families that had no one to turn to or count on, in my field of work. It is such a gift to be surrounded by those that love and care about you. I also feel so happy knowing that with age comes wisdom. I do not have an agenda at my age about Christmas and how it will turn out. I know when I was young I suffered greatly with let downs, because I put expectations on myself about what Christmas would be. This year I just let go and let God fill me with the holy spirit and enjoy the love all around me.
Life is a gift and we just have to be open and let the joy spill in. I hope all of you had a lovely holiday and know how very blessed you are in this life.
