Time To Be A Little Positive.

I was going to blog a few days ago, but all it would have been was a bunch of whining and complaing about how I needed sleep...and how my sweet little Tayden was making that very difficult for me. I think I was too tired or lazy to even blog about it...and now I'm over it.
So on to something a little more uplifting...
I love this time of year. I love having our Christmas decorations up, drinking hot chocolate and cuddling up on the couch with warm blanket. I have so much to be thankful for. It seems as though every where you look people are facing so many trials and struggles that it makes my own seem a little less significant. I have two healthy, happy, sweet, adorable little boys. I have the best husband who knows exactly how to make me laugh, calm me down, comfort me, and baby me when I need it. I have an amazing older brother...that we have adopted into our home...and even though things have been tough for all of us I don't think he will ever understand how much I love him and appreciate him....this time has brought me so close to him. He has really become one of my best friends. And then I have my own health, job, ability to work, home, food....the list could go on. I love Christmas....and it is so important for all of us to remember...it's not about what's under the tree, but who's around it. I hope that I can do a little better this year to remember the true meaning and spirit of Christmas.

No, but really... I agree. I think we all lose sight of that sometimes. And as hard as things have been for us this year, I too have a lot to be thankful for. Wish we were a little closer to all you BFF's though! Miss you.
