Ho Ho Ho !!!! ....sorry

I just have to say that I LOOOOOVE Christmas SO MUCH!!! I love everything about it. I like to sing Christmas songs pretty much anytime of day and loud and sometimes I don't know the words. Hate me now?? Yeah, I know some people aren't as thrilled about Christmas. And I must say, I've had those years where work and life made it nearly impossible to give a crap about Christmas. I even had a year when....wait for it.....I DIDN'T DECORATE AT ALL!! I know!  Yeah, well this year our wonderful Grandson is here and it makes every single good thing about Christmas even better!
Last night we (my son,hubby and grandson) decorated our tree. It was a really good time and I'm SO grateful for every minute of it. If you'd asked me 2 years ago if I thought we'd be here now I would've said hell no. I was not the person I am today, nor was life the way it is now. This should give me hope for the future. When I think life is stagnant and blah, I can pause and remember that in a day, week, year, 2 years it could be SO completely different and most likely MUCH better. So I think this Christmas is a reminder to me to have HOPE. I've been worried, afraid for and sad about how my son's life was before this year and now I feel hopeful and happy for him and his sweet son.
I'm reminded of Garrison Keillor's quote on one of his shows  "Thank you God for this wonderful life and forgive us if we do not love it enough".
