“It is a miracle if you can find true friends, and it is a miracle if you have enough food to eat, and it is a miracle if you get to spend your days and evenings doing whatever it is you like to do, and the holiday season—like all the other seasons—is a good time not only to tell stories of miracles, but to think about the miracles in your own life, and to be grateful for them.”
—Lemony Snicket, The Lump of Coal
I saw this on my google reader and it pretty much sums up the kind of attitude I want to always keep in my heart. The hubs and I often speak of all the things we are thankful for, usually on a daily basis. But I want to start a tradition during Christmas with our kid(s), where it’s not about presents but it’s about a thankful heart.
I hope to have us gathered around the Christmas tree, drinking delicious hot cocoa, reading a few books together. Then talking about what we are thankful for, the miracles in our life.
Even though Christmas was yesterday, here is what miracles I’m thankful for:
-My WONDERFUL friends, you know who you are
-All of you who have reached out to me in support, I still can’t believe how I haven’t met some of you but you are so caring and kind. I am so lucky
-My baby. My precious, precious baby. :*)
My heart is over flowing with so much happiness. I’m about to explode glitter.
Happy Holidays everyone!
