Celebrate Christmas with Love...

Christmas day has always been bittersweet from me. My entire life I’ve lived away from “home”. Though I am “from” South Carolina, when I was growing up, home for my family was in Delaware and Pennsylvania where my grandparents were. 

Home is wherever my family is

Home is wherever my family is

I always believe that God prepared me for an adult life similar to how I grew up. With my family now, we live away. 

What’s different is that we do travel for Christmas. We go to my husband’s home for Christmas which is also the week of his birthday. And it’s bittersweet.

I’m happy that we are all together but sad that I am still “away.”

Then I look at my son and remember my childhood Christmases. Home for me as a child was where my mom, dad and brother were. For my parents, I imagine, it was also bittersweet. I remember their nostalgic Merry Christmas calls home

I envy families that all live together in the same town, and I cannot ever understand why they’d choose not to be together on this day. For me that would be the best Christmas ever.

But I thank God for my Christmases as they are. We arrived here safely, everyone is healthy and alive. I'm with my family and memories are being made. Christmas is love and a day to celebrate with family. 

Jesus is love, and HE is the reason for the season. Merry Christmas!!!

Where to start...

Where to start...

This time last year I took the whole month of December off from blogging. I did this advent thing that was more trouble than it was worth.

I actually thought about doing it again this year, but remembered how hard it was to get back into writing at the first of the year. I also feel like I really never got my mojo back.

So I'm just treating this post like it's double dutch and jumping right in.

A Cure for Writer's Cramp...

A Cure for Writer's Cramp...

Prologue: Daddy and I were riding in the car on the way out of town to shoot a Marine Corps Ball. He said, "I've got some blog topics to help you with your writer's cramp."

The day the earth stood still...

The day the earth stood still...

I have an affliction with benefits. When I am anxious, I clean. When I am procrastinating, I clean. I'm not a neat freak but between anxiety and procrastination, stuff is clean around here. If I am unable to clean, you'll find something else ridiculously organized. Sometimes in the process, I mess up stuff...

Facebook always has the backstory...

Facebook always has the backstory...

I stewed about what I could write today just to get my feet wet in blogging again but I came up with nothing. Then something happened to put the icing on the backstory cake.
