Christmas Greetings! Today is Christmas Eve 2010. It is amazing that this day has arrived at our doorstep so quickly this year. I've always loved the holidays until 5 years ago when our eldest son was killed in Iraq with 30 other men. I have come a long way since that terrible moment in time, but there are still the hurdles of special occasions & the dreaded holidays. This year, I have had a particularly difficult time prepping for the celebration of "Our Savior's" birth. I started listening to Christmas music early in the season (Octoberish), yet, the path to being excited about the holiday has been ever elusive.
There have been the gift giving exchanges & the Christmas cards signed, sealed, & delivered, but with little fanfare. The Christmas baking was at a minimal with only a few selected recipes created to indulge in & share. I just never found that "Christmas Spirit" this year. I'm not giving up yet...it's only Christmas Eve. LOL
Don't let your Christmas be bogged down with worry, doubt, & saddness. There is still time to find the joy, the love, & "The Spirit". I'm still looking!
Christmas wishes to you & yours!
