Today was absolutely perfect. Not because of the gifts,decorations or even the food. Today was perfect because I spent the day with my family. It wasn't about the gifts, how big or how much it cost.
As we sit on our livingroom floor in front of our warm fireplace and imperfect tree, I think back to l last year. I remember wondering if I'd make it to see next Christmas. I remember writing each of my boys letters just in case I wasn't able to tell them how much I love them.
All morning I couldn't shake what was wrong. I was sad, overwhelmed, and yet overcome with this feeling of not wanting to do anything. From get out of bed, showering, all the way to cooking dinner. Everything just seems so hard. As soon as I saw both my boys walk through the front door every negative, sad,depressing thought had disappeared.
Today was for my family, I stayed off social media all day, not because I didn't care to talk to anyone, but because I wanted to be in the moment. I didn't want to miss anything.
I truly hope you all had a very Merry Christmas! Love, Sandee
