I hope your Christmas is blessed and filled with family, love, and laughter. This holiday is always such a nice reminder of how much we are blessed with, both materially and non-materially, and though it can sometimes be hard to wade through all the hallmark mumbo jumbo about gifts and santa and whatnot, this day is probably one of the easiest of the year to be truly joyful.
I thank God for all I’ve been blessed with, including the fact that I now have two families to celebrate this holiday with – one I was born into and one that accepted me with open arms a couple years ago. I am so looking forward to seeing my family down in Texas in a couple days, but I am ever grateful to be here in Iowa right now. Merry Christmas – take a few moments today to thank God for all your own blessings.
