Let your heart be light. Well, that's easier said than done isn't it? Although we are mostly filled with gratitude, we have a few things weighing heavily on our hearts this season. .. And I know that reality is.. a lot of other people do too. Some of us our sick, poor, heartbroken, defeated, WHATEVER it is.. it's there. I'm really into breaking out the lights and putting on the movies, and drinking hot drinks, and giving sweet nothings... but at some point all this shopping and SALE SALE SALE, and all this insane busy-ness everywhere.. it's just not cutting it. It feels really hollow to me right now. Give me some substance!
So I'm really gonna try. I'm gonna put on a smile and love on my husband and son.. and show my son what really matters. I want to look the people I love in the eye and tell them how much they mean to me, tell them how much I cherish our memories, and that wherever we go, they'll always be special to me. Wonderful people come in and out of your life all the time. Maybe you know them for a year, or a decade, or forever. But if you feel the connection.. if they made an impact.. LET. THEM. KNOW.
I hope this isn't too heavy. I mean it in a good way. I'm getting back to cookie baking, and Christmas movies now. Will resume my usual substance-free posts later. :)
