You get 90 seconds to be on this blog, then I implore you to shut down your computer, put down your phone and give your family the gift of your presence for the next few days.
Laugh at the little things that would normally frustrate you.
Remember that holidays aren't perfect... not even for The Martha.
Make the phone call you were dreading to make.
Take pictures on your camera... and in your heart.
Oh, hug your family this Christmas. Hug your Dad. Hug your brother. Hug your sister. Hug your Mom.
May you find a quiet moment where you can reflect on the incredible goodness of God's blessings in your life.
We have so much to be thankful for.
I have so much to be thankful for.
And thank you for the notes and emails telling me that you're thinking about me during this first Christmas without Shirl...
I'm sure there will be tears... but I can guarantee they will be mixed with laughter and joy and chocolate covered cherries and Christmas parades and cut-out cookies and remembering that Jesus is what this holiday is all about...
...because that's what she would want.
Merry, merry Christmas to all of you.
You're a blessing to me.
Now put down your phone/ipad/computer.
