Treasured Family Traditions
I love that Christmas still makes me feel (and sometimes act) like a kid. Tonight, my family and I indulged in all our old traditions....the ones that make me feel loved and safe and happy, no matter what our actual situation is.
So I made some favorite Christmas cookies with my mom, listened to some Christmas carols, had some 7-layer Jello (we've done this since 1987!) and watched Love Actually. And since we're on vacation and not at home, we decorated a teeny tiny Christmas tree.
Before I sign off for the weekend, I wanted to wish everyone a very merry Christmas. Even though I love the secular trappings of Christmas as much as the next person, I also try to remember that at its heart, Christmas is about God's love for us. Have a wonderful weekend and see you next week!
