Needless to say, Christmas is really hard this year. I am trying my best to not be a "downer" for the little ones but I don't think I am doing too good of a job of it.
I love Christmas! I love all of the crowds of people, all of the hustle and bustle. It just seems there are things that pop up that completely make me lose it all - like a song or a smell or a place I go that John and I used to go.
I understand that this is all part of the process but that does not make it any easier. I am so thankful for my Tiffany who is my rock and seems to sense my every mood and phase I am going thru. She lets no one get in my way. She really is a precious granddaughter but she can be a bear sometimes if she thinks someone is not treating me right. LOL
But, then I stop and remember the real reason for this blessed season - the birth of our Lord. John was undoubtedly the most faithful Christian I have ever known and I try to remember this when I "lose" it. I am so thankful for a God who can comfort me and tell me it's ok if I cry or whatever crazy thing I am doing at the time. God is so good.
Hope you are all enjoying this festive season. It truly is one of the most wonderful times of the year.
