Holiday Hoopla Pt. 1

The day, Christmas Eve.  The air was palpable.  The calm before the storm.

I love bumbling around the house before anyone else is up; especially on Christmas Eve.  I know whats coming - excitement, joy, laughter, tears.  It truly is the best day of the year.

I am richly blessed and I know it.

Having my brother and his wife home for Christmas this year was a special treat.  We had a great Christmas Eve at mom and dads.

Who Do You Want To Be?

I'm following a blogger friend of mine, and using question prompts to help get out of a blog slump and have some cool things to write about.  The title of this post was one of the prompts.

"Who Do You Want To Be?"

This is a very tricky, but really quite easy question.  I want to be the woman that I am.  I want to make people happy, and make sure that I am happy.  I want to be an amazing wife, and a great mom.

The Best Wife I Can Be

One of the things I love about Ross is he lets me be who I am.  In the almost 20 years that we've been together I have always felt comfortable in that fact.  He never doubts or diminishes my feelings, and even though we DON'T agree on each other's views all the time, I don't feel as though he judges me. We balance each other well, and I really like that about us.

An Awesome Mom

This one is HUGE for me.  There is nothing in this world more important to me than being a good mother to my boys.  I was so very blessed to have wonderful examples of what great moms are.  My mother and grandmother have shown me exactly what family truly means.  I am forever thankful for all the memories my parents filled my mind and heart with, and I sincerely hope that I have been able to do the same for my own children.

A Good Friend

My friendships are important to me, and even though I've been on this earth almost 40 years, I'm still learning what it is to be a good friend. I tend to keep people at a distance.  I don't share a lot of my worries or excitements because I often feel like it is something I need to work through on my own. I am working to be better at this.  

Be Happy

Because life is too short to be unhappy.  So go see a movie.  Eat some cake.  Say you're sorry if you need to.  Ta...
