Christmas had come and gone and now we are heading into a new year, a new decade.
Christmas was amazing, as usual, filled to the brim with family, love and laughter. A lot of laughter, we are a family that loves to laugh. We had a new addition, Izzy Anne’s boyfriend joined us. I hope we didn’t scare him, he doesn’t seem like the type that scares easily.
Christmas is a double edged sword for me. I love it, the hustle, bustle, sights, sounds, food, music and people.
I hate it because I miss so many people, my mom, dad, son, brother, grandparents, cousins and all of my aunts and uncles. They’re all gone, and parts of the season went with them
The other day I took a picture of the sky, the clouds were dark and heavy with the light trying to break through.
It was a perfect representation of how this time of year makes me feel. Darkness with the light bursting through.
Isn’t that our souls as well? Darkness with the light of Christ shining through.
I know I’ve said it before but I feel it cannot be said enough, I very literally have the best children ever. I’m so proud of them, their accomplishments and the people they have become.
They are all smart, funny, generous and considerate. The people they have brought into the fold reflect those traits as well.
I have exciting news that I can’t share yet, after the 1st I’ll be able to.
I’m signing off for now, I have work in the morning. Then I’m off for 5 days. I hope you all had a great Christmas and that the new decade brings peace, prosperity and love.
