This year, we will not worry about how many presents are under the tree or how much we spent on them, but we will be thankful that we have each other, we have a home to call our own and we have love in our family! Those are the things I treasure most about my Christmas memories anyway. I don't remember any particular gifts. I remember the family times, attending mass on Christmas Eve, placing Jesus in the manger, singing "Silent Night," eating shrimp cocktail while we opened presents and Dad handing out the gifts as we all shouted over top of each other about what we received. In addition, we will be thankful to God for giving his only son for us. Isn't that REALLY what Christmas is anyway?! And shouldn't there be Christmas in out lives everyday?
So, just in case I don't get on here again before the 25th, may you all have a very merry, blessed, joyful and love-filled Christmas!
