Busy and Blessed

Santa's k.Mac sleigh has officially delivered its very last package as of yesterday. So, all together now: fa la la la la...la la la la.

Our family has been busy all season long. Busy and blessed. Blessed with great memories made already this Christmas season.

Blessed to have had my Mom-mommie for 79 years before she passed away on the 8th of this month. And blessed to have had Kenny's Papaw for 80 years before he passed away on the 21st of this month.

While the busyness that comes with traveling to memorial services and funerals is not anyone's favorite, it has blessed me with much to reflect on and without a doubt, has aligned my priorities right on time.

Presents, pretty papers, and fluffy tissue ain't where its at.

Little hands, giggles and cowlicks,
A glass of wine with my aunt and my sister-in-law,
Music that feeds my soul,
Tears of happiness and heartache,
Holding on and letting go...
Living, laughing, and loving with all I can.
Yep, right on time.

So thank you, God. Thank you for all that you give. Thank you for the huge hug of family and the warm blanket of toghetherness that you wrap me in.

I wish everyone the realness of Christmas. That in this season of all the busyness you find more than one moment to smile from the inside out and hug your happiness with your whole heart.

Busy and blessed.

It seems that Santa isn't the only one that knows my Christmas list.

Merry Christmas to all.
