For about 2 seconds I felt bad when I got a stack of Christmas cards and remembered I hadn't mailed any out- and I probably won't get to. Life is swiftly passing us by, isn't it? So, my apologies if you have not gotten a card from me. You are not alone.
I love being a mom..and a wife.. I love being a sister. and a daughter..and a friend. My heart is full today, what can I say.
Mostly because I get to visit my family and THIS year I don't have to worry if my dad will make it home from Iraq or not...If they will let him have the "leave" or if things are too dangerous.. I don't have to worry. *BLESSING
Whatever your stance on the war is, one thing I think we can all agree on is that our military is amazing. Those men and women do our country so much service and we are indebted to them for it. **MORE BLESSINGS**
..But this Christmas I will miss this little guy right here.
My brother Perris- the most awesome kid around. I love him and miss him... He won't be joining us this Christmas because he is out preaching about our Savior, Jesus Christ. What a blessing it is to have the family I do.. who think about each other and try to be the best they can be. We're not perfect but we're perfect for each other.
I'm so grateful for this time of year-for family and friends & for the Savior for bringing glad tidings of great joy.
That's what Christmas is about.
