I know Christmas falls on the 25th of December every year. No surprise there... but for some reason, I find I can't get my act together. The season is always a blur of activities and before I know it, Christmas is here, and I am, surprised! I find myself saying, "How the heck did that happen?"
Despite my failings, we always have a wonderful Christmas. Nothing brings Neal and myself such joy as the faces of the kids when they open up their gifts. The kids say they are still "believers". I'm not sure if they really do believe, or if they say they believe for my sake.
Anyway, this year, 2014, I am going to try harder to enjoy the holiday season. I have the next 12 months to get my act together. I'm determined to identity the few things that seem to trip me up and do something about it.
I'm going to start blogging again because I have found, it holds me accountable. I really want to document what is going on in our lives. The quote, "The days are long, but the years are short" really resonates with me. Before I know it, my kids will be in High School and I'll be old. It will be nice to look back at this digital space and not just believe, but know, we've had a wonderful life :) Happy New Year!
