i know its kind of silly, but when i’m going through tough times, i always visualize myself at christmas. for instance, when i was pregnant with my oldest (she was due in november) and i was in those last few months of my pregnancy feeling huge and a little nervous about child birth, i visualized myself at christmas holding my newborn. and when my sister was first diagnosed with cancer, i knew she would be about done with the chemo portion on her treatment around christmas. i could go on and on.
christmas is hands down my favorite holiday. i love the excitement it brings my kids, the lights, and all the family gatherings. this christmas i
should will be in my new house, my sister will be home from md anderson, and i will be the mother of a 6 and 4 yr old (they both have birthdays coming up!).
maybe i’ll start my christmas shopping 😉
