I have some Christmas wishes. I hope this Christmas I can remember those that are cold and hungry, and not complain about anything having to do with my house or food. Sometimes I just complain about the silliest little things - honestly, I can act like a spoiled brat.
I hope this Christmas for peace on earth beginning right here in our house. I don't really mean no conflict at all, because that is unrealistic. I do hope that each one of us can have a voice about what feels important to us, but do it in a respective way of each other. When we do disagree, I pray we can find resolution that feels safe for each involved.
I hope this Christmas we find true contentment, not in material things, but in the things that can't even be seen, like Joy, fun, hope, and especially love. I pray that all those I love will have everything they need.
I guess most of all, in the next week I don't want to get all wrapped up in the things that are trivial. I want to not let myself forget what is important to me, which is the people in my life, not the details. Speaking of, you, YES - YOU reading this right now. You are a blessing to me. I feel so honored to have you in my life.
Merry one week until the big day!!
