Count It All Joy!

Presents wrapped, laundry done, grocery list written - looks like we're good to go! Last night I was here by myself until about 10:00 or so and it was so relaxing, with a pinch of running around finishing things up. Very quiet, soft Christmas lights - it's all good. I can't help but look around and inside my heart and feel very blessed for the abundant good we have. As we face our first Christmas without Daddy there is a big hole in our family dynamics. But the healing process has started and we are all working very hard at making it a special time in spite of it all. It would be very easy to sit and weep, but as long as we keep our eyes on the good in our lives, it will be ok.
