Thankful Thursdays #8

This Thursday I’m so thankful for my co-workers who have my back and check in on me after a rough day. I hit the jackpot when it comes to co-workers. They make it easier to handle a difficult job. They make it worth it to come back to work every week. So I’m just soooo grateful for that.

Since it’s Christmas Eve I am stoked to be spending the afternoon and evening with my side of the family. I love being around them, even if we are dysfunctional at times….or a lot. I love tradition and for the majority of my life my family celebrated Christmas on Christmas Eve. Then we might spend Christmas day with extended family if they were close.

With a toddler it is hard to clean the house. Plus I don’t like chores. But I think I have the house ready for my family.

 This is me. Not just during the holidays, pretty much whenever my family comes over because they are all into having spotless houses. I am not. Clutter is my friend. My house feels lived in. I am thankful that I can have my house decorated and as put together as I like or how much time I want to spend cleaning my house.

I wish you all a very Merry Christmas! I hope it is filled with good company, enough food, a warm place to stay, and much happiness! I am also happy that Christmas time is a great reminder that Jesus was born. It’s not about the gifts or trivial things; it’s about family and remembering that this holiday is to celebrate Jesus’ birth. I’m glad I didn’t have to give birth to my daughter in a stable. I wouldn’t have survived that I think!

Ok truly wishing you are a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
