hey friends :)

i hope your Christmas was as great as mine.
one of the best Christmases I've had :)
even though sadness and the feeling of nostalgia didn't go away.

i tried my best to make the best of it.
and i'm glad it did :)

i spent time with my mom, brothers, aunts, uncles, cousins, and it was just great to feel and be care free and to genuinely laugh; two things i haven't done in a while.

i love having a big family.

i love snow.

i loved seeing my cousins smile when they opened their gifts.

i loved the amazing food my mom cooked.

i loved watching funny you tube videos with my uncle and cousins.

i love the smell of fresh snow on the pavement.

i love looking at his face and smile like a little kid.

i love spending the holidays surrounded by people i love and i know love me just the same.

i love feeling that i can do this, that i won't let the issues I've had since birth get the best of me. that i will continue to just win the battle that i won't let the battle beat me down anymore.

i thank god for each day he keeps me here and for each day he helps me fight and believe in myself.

i thank him all of the time.

i love also being able to spend Christmas with my grandpa, since i don't get to see him very often only about 3 months every year, or every two years, i'm just thankful for having him here and just being able to hug him. to hear his voice , laugh at his jokes.

i feel blessed, and empowered :)

i hope with all my heart that you all had an amazing Christmas and that you were filled with happiness and love. :)

merry Christmas :)

It sounds like you had a great Christmas! I too had one of the best Christmas's I've had in a super long time. I visited my mother for a couple hours but then spent the entire afternoon/evening and wee hours of the morning lol with a few friends. We're pretty much family. We exchanged gifts, ate, ate some more lol, watched The Last Airbender, snacked a little and then cleaned up dinner, worked on a 1000 pc puzzle for a little bit, and then played xbox kinect for a couple hours. We stopped only because we were all sore lol I spent about 11 hours at their house and left feeling very loved and like I was part of a normal family for once for Christmas. I had a few moments of sadness while there because I wanted to call my 'nuther mother' and share the fun but then it hit me that I can't. I was glad that I made time to go out to the cemetary for a few minutes to spend time with her. I was able to pull myself out of the sadness though by reminding myself that this is what she would want for me. She has always wanted me to be happy... This evening I have smiled and laughed so much. I miss it! So now I head to bed to get some sleep and dream of the wonderful time I had today.
Take care all and I hope you had a wonderful Christmas!

I am so happy to read that you all had a nice Christmas. Mine was nice too. Saw the grandkids and watched them open up gifts. It started to snow huge flakes, it was so pretty. It was a wonderful day. Though the holiday doesn't last long, I hope that the feelings remain for you all. This is truly a special time of year.

Hugs, Karen

Really a good thread you have started.  I love your list and I am  very happy for all who made their Christmas special. 
My MIL is ill and this year we made Christmas very special for her.  Her daughter and we 3 daughter-in-laws planned all of Christmas Eve.  We bought all the paper plates and napkins, decorated the tree, put the lights up on the house, brought all of the food and drinks.
We  arranged for her 4 children to all sit together with their Mom for Christmas as usually the sons head down to the rec room to eat and visit while the women sit in the dining room with my MIL.  The sons were all told ahead of time that they would sit with their Mom and Dad so the immediate family had one Christmas Dinner sitting with their MOM.  We women got a bit bossy with the sons but all worked out wonderful.  Most of the grandchildren were there and of course their only  great grandchild, my son's little girl was there, so it was a special Christmas for my MIL who may not be with us next Christmas - though I pray she will be.
I talked with her yesterday and she said it was the most glorious Christmas she ever had even thow all the Christmas have been wonderful this one was special.  So mission accoplished and we all loved being together.  She also got to attend Christmas Mass and that was glorious too.  :-)
We made memories.
Gentle Hugs,
