Blog break

OK, you've probably already noticed that I'm taking a blog break for the month of December. I just have too much to do, and really so should you. December is the most wonderful month of the year because you get to share joy and love with all of the important people in your life. Be an elf. Make cocoa. Even better- make cocoa with someone cute and small. Give handmade gifts to the grandparents & teachers. They'll appreciate them more than other stuff anyway. And find a way to squeeze in something for those in need. Today I made a gingerbread man for the United Way. It was a $2 donation, small & almost insignificant...except it was so significant because I did it for someone else. Even people like me, who are not in the best financial circumstances, can still do something for others.

OK, off my soapbox and back to the blog break.

Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!

This week I'm especially thankful for:

- my children, and their good health
- my family- I had a wonderful party this weekend, and I had such fun being with them. My family is the best. So supportive and loving, and I couldn't be luckier there.
- my job- OK, it's not my dream job, but it's A job, and I'm thankful for the flexibility to work and still be home at almost the same time my kids hop off the bus.
- my sister in law- for letting me borrow Twilight & New Moon. By the way- I've finished New Moon already, so tell your friend with #3 to get moving on the reading :)
- my friend from Switzerland- my swap box arrived this weekend and I promise photos are coming soon but I totally made out! Wait till you see the lovely goodies that Kristin sent to me!

This time of year is so busy I sometimes forget to tell people how much I love them and how happy I am to have them be a part of my life- hopefully this post will remind me of my good fortune in the weeks to come!

Have a great day!
