What I Love Most About the Holidays

With arms outstretched I thank. With heart beating gratefully I love. With body in health I jump for joy. With spirit full I live. ~Terri Guillemets

It's snowing!  Atleast here in Maryland, it is.  I can't help but to be excited.  Generally, I could do without it but my kids love it, so I'm happy that they are happy.  I always get nostalgic around this time of year, remembering my own excitement as a child and what made the holidays such a special time. 

So while I'm forcing my son to watch Christmas movies with us instead of playing his Xbox, I know that one day he'll look back and remember these days fondly. My two year old barely knows what's going on but she's got this wide eyed-something awesome is happening-so i have to say everything as loud as possible-thing going on.  It's very cute.  

I'm just breathing it all in, you know?  What I love most about Christmas is remembering all the ones that came before.  Thinking of where I've been, how life has evolved, and what I have to be thankful for - it has a way of putting things in perspective. 

I hope that during this holiday season and as we wrap up this year, you will find courage for your present and your future.  Focus on all that is good in your life & be THANKFUL.

Love you!
