I am back...I have enjoyed my break from the computer,
but have missed my blog!
And yours too!! :)
I decided that I would not put the added stress of
keeping up with all my technology over the holidays on my shoulders.
Hence the break.
I knew that Christmas would be bittersweet this year
as on Christmas day last year we lost my Dad to a sudden heart attack.
So I decided that I would not stress myself out over all the things that didn't get done this year.
And believe me there were a lot of things! :/
Some of my decorating didn't get done,
some of my shopping didn't get done,
my Christmas cards didn't get done,
I did very little painting or creating,
(except a special gift for my siblings and a lamp for my daughter,
which I will show you in a later post)
and I did no blogging...
So I tried my best to forget all that and embrace the season.
While I am never sure how much embracing I have done, I did get through the season.
And knowing how difficult the first Christmas without my Dad might be,
this year I am happy to say that I just made it to the other side! :)
Now, I will spend the next week taking the Christmas decorations down that I did get up.
But...I am going to have a little Christmas of my own.
I am going to leave my sweet little Nativity set out where I can constantly be reminded
of the Reason for the Season.
Embracing, Beholding, Worshiping and Praising!
Christmas is everyday...right?!
So, while so many are done with it,
I am going to turn on my Christmas music this week,
(in my nice quiet house, kids are back in school)
and celebrate the Birth of our Sweet Savior! <3
I think I paid 28$ for this not so attractive chair...
