Yes, we’ve all heard it. But today really epitomizes it for me. In light of giving, we also receive. Today I got to spend the whole day with my dearest childhood friend. It was an unexpected visit. We laughed, we cried, we reminisced and we had a wonderful time. Over the years, having kids, being married, and lives moving along, sometimes it’s hard to find time to connect with the people we love. Today’s visit was exactly that and a huge blessing. We get the chance every couple of years, but this visit was just a bonus.
So while I don’t have too much time to be eloquent, I want to say just how grateful and thankful I am to have had a relaxed day like today to spend with friends that I consider family. Because I live so far away from my family, the holidays can be hard. I cherish the times like these, and while I know holidays can also be stressful for family get-togethers, I hope all of you to to find the good in your holiday festivities. I know it’s there, even when it’s hard to see.
Happy Holidays, and don’t forget to comment to enter today’s Holiday Giveaway!
