I was very fortunate to have my family with me this Christmas. Well some of them. But, it is better than none of them. 😀 My son came from Memphis and my granddaughter stopped by. She is in college and working quite a bit, so we don’t get to see her as much. My daughter and her husband were there too. My two grandsons are with their Dad this Christmas. I always miss it when they are not here. My daughter Amanda and her family are moving this week to a new place in Tennessee.

Someone may say, well it sounds to me like hardly anyone was there. But, the people that were there make it just as special as any who were not. The effort people make to try to together count for so much. And I am grateful for that. I am grateful I have a home and food on the table for this holiday when so many do not. It is always good to remind yourself of your blessings and not just on Thanksgiving.  I am grateful for the friends that I have and the Christmas wishes they gave me and the hugs, both virtual and real.

I am grateful for my husband who stands by me no matter what. He has been the greatest Christmas present I received other than my son and grandson. I wish everyone and anyone who reads this a blessed holiday, much love and joy in the New Year and I hope you had a very Merry Christmas!
