I have received many cards this year and have them all hung on our front door. I always enjoy reading what people have been up to during the year. I have spent many years sending out cards to loved ones but didn't get to it this year. I didn't even send cards to my family and for that I feel so bad! I'm thinking maybe New Years cards???
In the beginning of the season I thought this year would be gloomy...no extended family....no money.....but it's turned out to be a beautiful Christmas. I have felt more joy this Christmas than I thought possible. I love my family more than words can even express. How grateful I am for them! How thankful I am for my extended family who has been so understanding of our plight this year......no money!.......My feelings for them are so strong and so loving. How thankful I am for my friends...I am so blessed to have so many! There's this line in my favorite movie of all time...maybe you know it....."George, (replace that with my own name) you've really had a wonderful life"...........yes, I've really had a wonderful life!! I know I get down and sometimes I get downright hysterical (my wonderful sister can attest to this)......but when I really think about it...I'm blessed and for that I'm truly thankful. So, this Christmas I am remembering our Savior and what he has done for us....I'm remembering family and friends.....I'm remembering LOVE.
