|This is actually one of my normal relatives if that tells you anything.|
List, let me look at my LIST. Which BTW has been rewritten no less than ten times.
Thanksgiving was less than a month ago. I was so thankful...for everything...I couldn't post on the 30 days of Facebook thanks because I had 1,000 thanks. Too many things to post, it couldn't possibly fit in 30 posts. It was all pumpkin pie and scarecrows. How quickly I forgot that Thanksgiving isn't a holiday, but a way of life.
Now I am cranky and irritated and way to busy with "Christmas Stuff".
And I am having to budget in more time for a daily bath in hand sanitizer thanks to Sneezy.
Then I felt really ashamed, because many have a heavy heart this Christmas. Some people are reminded of those that have passed this time of year-whether many years ago or last year. Some people are leaving a loved one behind in the hospital to heal. Some people can't come home to be with their family. And some people are mourning a very recent loss of a loved one.
So hug your relatives extra tight this year, even the crazy ones.
Let your heart be filled - not with "Christmas Stuff" - but with many thanks and "The Christmas Spirit", and love on those that have one less seat at the dinner table.
