There's nothing like a bad year or two to make you appreciate the good ones.  I'll never forget what it felt like spending Christmas of 2007 in a nursing home.

Makes me remember to enjoy the little things.  :)

Happy Holidays Everyone!!!

I have not started my shopping.  Every year, I ask everyone for ideas around thanksgiving.  However, it is usually December 15th by the time they give them to me.  I should just buy them things I think they'd like. 

I am glad to hear you're excited about this year and are enjoying it.  I have some bitter-sweet feelings about this time of year.  I was not well Christmas 2008.  We didn't get most of our decor up and everyone got gift cards that year.

Again, glad this Christmas is a good one for you.  That was nice you took your mom to lunch.

Merry Christmas to you Brit, and (or Happy Haunukka, Kwanza, or just holidays to) everyone else!  It is great to hear the cheer in your post.

We are having lots of family over the holiday and I am looking forward to it - this last six months have given me new appreciation for the "present" moments.

Best wishes for the new year!
