Christmas is coming...
But this year...I feel some of that childhood excitement creeping back. I am tentative about it all in some ways, not wanting to feel disappointed or disappoint my children; but some of the magic has touched me. I have even already been listening to White Christmas in the car!
This is the first year in several that I have looked forward to putting up a Christmas tree. I even have a theme that has caught my fancy and I can't wait to see it come together. Items have been being gathered for this tree for several weeks now. I know financially our Christmas will be scaled back but I am already excited to know all my children will be here along with my parents (if their health allows.) When the kids are here and all the dogs are here it can be quite a raucous crowd but nothing is better than the sound of a house full of joy and love.
No, I didn't do any Black Friday shopping as I am afraid that might have put out the small little spark of Christmas Spirit I have! I a protecting this spark and hoping it grows into a flame and fills my heart with the true spirit of Christmas and gives me the energy to celebrate fully and make memories that will last for a lifetime. Lets get this party started!
