ChrisI know... I'm a day late. But give a girl a break. I had 20+ people at my home yesterday with several overnight guests the night before. I have such a lovely family and am truly blessed but boy is it exhausting to have so much going on all around you. I can see how this torch is going to be passed on to the young once the time comes.
I do hope the holiday spirit stays with all of us throughout the year. It's often that once the decorations are put away and the house is clean... and the diets begin that we forget about being kind to each other.
I'm thankful for many things this year but mainly the health of my family and friends. It wasn't long ago that our holidays were clouded with the threat of cancer... and loss. The year none of those things darken our door and I couldn't be happier for it.
