I'm sitting here at my mama's house in Georgia, gazing at her beautiful tree (it's 5 am and I can't sleep, but on the bright side, the tree is mighty pretty). Last night she pointed out that despite any--or all--of our struggles, we are so lucky. Sometimes it's easy to get overwhelmed by things that feel so important in the moment, and it can be hard to forgive others and ourselves, but ultimately? We have a lot to be thankful for.
Often in January I give myself a word to focus on for the year. A couple years ago it was productivity, and before that it was progress. This coming year, it's going to be peace.
We spend Christmas Eve with our dad and Christmas day with our mama, so it's off to celebration #1 tonight. I'm grateful to have Matt here and excited about a couple of special gifts I got for people this year--isn't it wonderful to get something you know is going to be a hit?
I hope you all have a wonderful holiday, in whatever form you celebrate or don't.
