Merry Christmas

Christmas used to be a time of angst for me. It was hard to get in the "holiday spirit". This by far has been the best Christmas ever. I owe a lot of this to my husband. He has given back to me all that I have been giving out over the years. For the longest time I never knew why I felt this way. I just felt like tradition took over and the true meaning was left out. I have slowly regained that joy of Christmas over the last few years. It's no longer " another day". It's a new day, with life.


My day...

1. Went and bought coffee and hot chocolate for the family... no one on the road.
2. Watched the sun rise at my mom's
