This year I made a promise to savor this Christmas and holiday season.
I can’t believe I am writing this, but it worked. This is probaby one of the best Christmases I have EVER had.
I wasn’t in it for the gifts I wanted. I wasn’t in it for the gifts being given by others.
I was in it for the pure enjoyment of the season. The magic and wonder of it all.
I was at so much peace and I had such a blast.
Just thinking of that day, starting with midnight mass and ending all snuggled on the couch makes me smile.
I am so thankful that I didn’t stress. I am thankful that those around me kept me in check.
I am thankful that you all have been part of it all.
I just hope that 2010 keeps up with this same great vibe I had at the end of 2009.
