Ahhh …

30 Dec

Another Christmas has come and gone and another year is all but history.

As much as I love Christmas, each year I keep thinking we shouldn’t do so much.  We really don’t need to buy presents  … after all we are at a point in life  (or at least I am) where I don’t really need anything … and if I do, I can just go buy it.

I certainly don’t need to do any Christmas baking … after all cutting back on food intake woul be a good thing for my physical body.

Of course, I really don’t need to send out Christmas cards … after all everyone that is meaningful in my life, I already keep in close contact with.

Here’s the thing though … if I cut out the presents, the food and the Christmas cards, I would most definitely be less stressed out, of that there is no question.  But each of those things are all a part of Christmas for me … and if I didn’t do them I am certain I would miss them.

So I’m going to keep on doing what I’ve always done … because it feels right for me.

Our house is quiet once again, and I have time to be alone with my thoughts and do as I please. 

2007 has been one of the best year’s of my life.  My family and I are all healthy and happy …  I traveled to many places I have never been before.  I spoke at a gathering in the Twin Cities, my story has been published in a wonderful book.  I’ve met some amazing people who I now call friends.  I started my own blog.   Work was, well work, but always proved to be”interesting!”   All in all, I live a very blessed life; and I am so very thankful for that.

I am excited to see what 2008 will bring to the journey!
